Megan Trueblood is an artist based in Orem, Utah, where she spends her days caring for her two children and capturing inspiration from quiet observations. She earned a BFA in Illustration from Brigham Young University in 2010.
“Life can be busy and chaotic; I find creating art to be a refuge and source of rejuvenation. I paint ordinary objects that are present in my home and part of my family life. Often, as I make dinner or play with my children, an object will beautifully catch the light, and I’ll snap a quick photo to paint later in my studio. Much of my work is inspired by those small moments with my family. I want my paintings to feel clean and simple—the stillness and simplicity resonates with my quiet, introverted soul. I like to think it can bring the same feeling of calm to others. Many lead busy, loud, chaotic lives these days and I hope my paintings can be a little escape for them as well.”
