Fetured Menu Artist

Megan Najera is the latest local artist we have asked to create a menu for Nosh Box Eatery's 'Funky Little Food Truck' and we are sure glad we did! She is super talented and her work is amazingly creative. Her use of color and shadow really made the menu special and we are truly excited to have her work as part of our mission to support other small business in our community. We hope to see her everywhere soon! We asked Megan to share with us how she got started and tell us about her passion for painting...

 

"I've has been creative ever since I can remember. Through a combination of passion, creativity and the obstacles life has given me - I quickly turned to a therapy involving acrylics, oil and mixed media. My paintings range from loud and bright, to dark and sinister, but always leaning towards realistic. I always keep a dream-like essence present and involve contrasting color. My work reflects an interest in learning to paint nature, landscapes, the human body, and facial structures. While what I do is definitely abstract, it’s very important to me to pin point and practice techniques of realism. 
    After having my son, I decided to transform what I was doing into a career. Through the past six years I’ve been able to expand to a wider audience. The drawings for friends I was doing on college ruled paper, turned into personal requests for paintings and tattoos. I have done a number of commissions, while showing my work in local Dallas and Fort Worth art shows. My immediate goals are to achieve being represented by a gallery, and move onto larger scale shows or festivals. My long term goals include showing at Art Basel, expanding my audience globally and to create works that will be of inspiration and passion.
