My name is Meaghen Burdick, I am a single mom and self taught artist located in the greater Toronto area. I have been passionate about art and painting since I was a young child. Over the years painting became a way for me to cope with the emotions surrounding traumatic experiences.
I lost touch with the brush in my late teens and turned towards fashion as an expressive outlet. This shift enabled be to gain a diploma in visual merchandising arts at Sheridan College. This is where I became versed in colour theory and composition. Through my journey in fashion I felt a creative void in my heart and soul. I was lacking the creative freedom of the brush and canvas.
Within the last two years, I fully immersed myself in acrylic painting. I classify myself as an intuitive painter, there is no planning before I put paint to canvas. Recently, I have begun small line works on paper as a way to simplify the world around us, bringing it back to basics. I will continue to learn, grow and explore every inch of the acrylic painting world.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

My art is a representation of what lies within my soul. My journey with acrylic painting started as a way to work through traumatic experiences as a child. Painting became one with my emotions. Through colour and texture I explore how emotions can be translated onto canvas. The ability to touch and hold what we feel creates an inner connection on a full sensory level.

This flower is a representation of the emotional struggles within.
The colour of the stem is vibrant, showing life and vitality. Though the flower itself is drooping, "hanging its head." Even though it seems so full of life, so vibrant, the weight of the world is pulling it down.

If only it could see how beautiful and strong it really is.

Layers of colour and shapes were used to create the foundation for this resting woman. It is time for rest, time for recovery, time for her to restore all that was lost.

An expression of inclusivity. We are all the same no matter what we look like. Look deeper into who we are at the core, find what lies beneath the layers we have built up.
