About Meg Harper's fantabulous world
"Nature inspires. It represents the truest essence of beauty. It has the power to influence people’s moods in ways no other subject matter does. To me it’s perfect. Growing up surrounded by the forest and mountains of the Adirondacks in upstate New York solidly routed my reverence with nature. It was very accessible to me and is where I spent most of my time and where I still feel closest to God. Fast forward about 20 years and wrap that up with my obsessions with; being different, vibrant color, movement, patterns, then sprinkle it with faux painting techniques and you’ve got a Meg Harper original. I believe vibrant colors influence our moods and make us feel good. I thoroughly enjoy bringing fun, laughter, joy, peace and happiness to the faces of people who see my paintings." – Meg Harper
"I received the art piece Cowpoke Flo from my love and I Love HER. He picked this piece for me because I grew up on a farm in a small town in the center of Kansas. I now live in Kansas City but will forever be a farmers' daughter. Thanks for creating such a fun piece of art." —Gaylene H.
Meg Harper has her BA in Painting from the State University of New York at Cortland and has been painting for over 20 years.

What Meg’s Collectors Are Saying
"I love the painting. It was more than I ever thought it could be, it hangs in our family room and I smile every time I look at it. The rooster I bought at the festival is in the kitchen too! Thank you so much, you did such a great job capturing our fur-kids!"
"It was so perfect! I couldn't believe how beautiful the colors were and how detailed the accents were when I saw it in person! You really did an awesome job capturing the appearance and character of the dogs."
"They LOVE it! Kept commenting on how perfectly you captured their personalities (just as you did with my babies). A complete success, again. Thank you!"
"We LOVE our Star of the Show, and it is much admired. It was hung temporarily over the mantel in the living room. Though not the perfect place for it, it is still holding that place of honor."
"I absolutely love it! The color, the deer eyes are perfect and so aptly titled Captured Innocence, just beautiful. We are going to frame it and hang it next to the fireplace. That's where I think it's going to go. It arrived in great shape too, and there was a little enclosure card with a painting of a jack rabbit on it. Thank you so much, it's so much more than I expected and I truly love it."
"I wanted to tell you that I am absolutely enamored with your art. I LOVE your whimsical, bold, colorful style. Simply amazing!"
"I think I forgot to let you know that we got the painting and we love it! It's even better than the picture! Merry Christmas and thanks for helping to make our Christmas jolly!"
"I received it yesterday and of course, had to open it! It is absolutley beautiful and I thank you so much for putting Nakku on canvas for us! He is gorgeous! Thanks a million!"
"She is beautiful and THANK YOU!!! Well, it has been a great experience having you paint Olive. She is so special to us and we wanted to have someone paint her that really saw the picture... and listened to what we wanted on our pet picture...the painting LOOKS JUST LIKE HER! It even captures her personality; playful, loyal and precious!!!"
"We LOVE it!!!! Wonderful job capturing her spirit; perfect eyes; ears; black "diamond" on her forehead; love the water; love the ball; love the sky." – Wendy
"The mural looks so fantastic! It exceeded my expectations - ( I knew anything you did would be super fabulous!) Thanks so much! It is so wonderful I can hardly stand it! - Perfect!"– Kristin, Domestic Bliss - Mesa, Arizona
"We absolutely love our painting. You are so full of life as reflected by your paintings. We really like the bright and cheery colors and have decided to bring more of that into our home." – John and Bea Redd
"When I look at your painting it transports me to another place. I feel peaceful, gracious, beautiful, unique and alive. Your paintings mark a point in time for me too, and are tied to certain memories or feelings. From what you shared about the painting I purchased I know that the abundance of flowers were there after a very rainy winter. So I see it as the bright side/reward after the challenges of the rain were endured."
"Meg has a way of capturing nature’s beauty on canvas that tricks you into thinking that the picture is alive. Her paintings make my spirit dance. "
"Peaceful and relaxing. The painting with the frame makes me think of days when life was less complicated. It reminds me of camping out somewhere at night there are still stars and serenity."
"I feel a sense of beauty, the magnificence of nature and life. Other words: vibrant, fun, funky."
"Your art reminds me of you: vivid, freely expressed and unique"
