Meghan Hildebrand’s paintings are constant exercises in innovation and improvisation. With a unique vocabulary of symbols, she translates her northern coastal landscape into electrifying dreamscape scenarios, each image often alluding to a larger narrative.
Despite frequent reinvention, her works often return to familiar themes - the childhood dream, a sense of journey over land, and the ‘personality’ of place. Defined points of interest, doorways and inlets, invite the viewer to enter the image and join the narrative.
Originally from Whitehorse, Yukon, Meghan studied art at the Kootenay School of the Arts and Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. She is now based in Powell River, BC, Canada.
