On the auspicious day of 7.7.77, Meghan Oona was born into a loving family in the Heartland. Blessed with a sense of magic early on, she made art since she could hold a crayon.
Following her dreams of enchanted forests to the West Coast, Meghan Oona graduated from Evergreen State College with her BA in Interdisciplinary Art.
After spending a year in the desert on a vision quest, Meghan Oona clarified that art is her purpose, then earned her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and became a professional artist.
“We all seek to understand ourselves more deeply. We all want to be fully awake, alive, and joyful. That’s where I come in. I act as a visual shaman by painting cosmic truths to awaken you to your true essence,” shares Meghan in discussing how she has created her work of art. But without further ado, see her visionary work below!
