WHO I AM
Meghan Barton is a classically trained photographer and printmaker who believes everyone deserves art. She brings an artist’s eye to your portraits, creating images of you and your family that are beautiful, natural and personal.
While her technical skills are advanced, Meghan sees beauty in simplicity. She brings this sensibility to photographing people, capturing unique little slices of life through her lens, from the subtle exchanges between parent and child to the telling gestures and details that mark the milestones in life. Her vision is unique – and her images are often surprising, and always fresh.
Friendly and adaptable, Meghan is passionate about creativity and her community – to her photography is a natural way to serve both.
WHAT I DO
Meghan studied fine art at Mount Allison University, where she trained with Thaddeus Holownia, the internationally acclaimed photographer. She has shared her artwork across Canada through prestigious grants, artist residencies, an array of solo and group exhibitions, and extensive media coverage.
Meghan’s work is part of numerous public and private collections across Canada. In 2005, the prestigious New Brunswick Art Bank acquired a piece of her work, making her one of the youngest artists at the time to have a work in the provincial collection.
Meghan has always found ways to share her work outside of the usual art venues. Her paintings decorated a set of the CBC Television show ‘Being Erica,’ and were used in a national Canadian Cancer Society calendar. She has led community art projects with children, and taught fine art classes.
