I graduated from Presbyterian College in 2013 with a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art and I have been building my business ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic paint- it's what you'll usually find in my shop- but I can paint in oils and watercolors, as well! Another thing: I love to lay on the color. I'm sure if you've made it this far, you realize that! (Don't worry, I can paint in neutrals too. Really, it's no prob!) If I had to list my favorite colors, pink would assuredly be there, but over the last 3 years or so I've found myself really into greens, yellow, and navy. If I were labeling my art, I would say that I am a painter of abstracted things- fruit, animals, florals- or just abstracts. In the last few years, I've been painting a ton of animals, and they are all so bold and sassy. Pets, elephants, giraffes- all full of color. We've even added some humans into the mix recently!
my collector is a person who loves what she (OR HE!) loves and knows what she loves. she isn't afraid to decorate in an unexpected way. she has a great first apartment or a gorgeous forever home and wants a conversation piece- and she is really, really cool. people love her!
I am currently working on a few new series- 2018 will see sushi paintings, a snakes and beetles series, monkeys, pups, and even new elephants and giraffes. A goal I've made for myself is to paint more originals and i've got big plans!
I'm recently married, I have a sweet, huge dog NAMED EFFIE, and I'm currently settling into a new house. I paint from my home studio, and we travel to northern California and NYC often. I LOVE CUPCAKES, BUT I'M SUPPOSED TO BE GLUTEN-FREE (YIKES). I LOVE A FUN MANI-PEDI--AND TRAVELING. WE ARE WAY INTO FOOD, AND SUSHI IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. I'M A LOVER OF FLOWERS AND FASHION AND DINNER PARTIES, AND I THINK MY PAINTINGS ARE JUST ANOTHER THING I DO BECAUSE I LOVE TO DO IT. IF YOU WANT TO SEE MY FACE more often and all of my personal comings and goings, CHECK OUT MY BLOG OR FIND MY PERSONAL INSTAGRAM: @MEGANARMITANO.
Throughout 2018, I have plans to do so many different things: new releases, new prints, new collaborations, and hopefully add a few new stores the list of places you can see my work. If you are interested in carrying my work or prints in your store, or working with me ON AN INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT, click the links at the top left of this page! IF YOU ARE A PRIVATE COLLECTOR, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BROWSE MY SHOP, REQUEST A COMMISSION, OR DROP A LINE VIA MY CONTACT PAGE!
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making it. I've been called a ton of things as an artist (some not as sweet as others), but my favorite thing to hear is that my work makes people smile.
