February 2019 Featured Artist – Megan Cross
Posted on 02/04/2019

Megan grew up in the Cottonwood Heights area of Salt Lake City and is a Utah native. She loves art and has explored different art media since grade school. Beginning in watercolor, she expanded into oils and pencil. After being nominated as Cottonwood High School’s Sterling Scholar in Visual Arts, she graduated and worked professionally for many years using acrylics.

This talented artist then turned her creative gifts to making and raising three beautiful children. She and her supportive and loving husband care for them together at their home in South Jordan.

In 2014, after changing careers to the investment banking industry, Megan found herself drawn back to art. Ballpoint pen doodling led to ink renderings and a practiced honing of pointillism. Ink and pointillism are now her favorite style of media and expression.

She currently fulfills commissioned pieces while continually refining her artistic talents and has never lost her love of art.
