New Website

For the last month or so, I've been building a more professional-appearing and easier to navigate website for my work over at Wordpress.  I'll continue to post things to my blog here, but it will be more "blog-like", meaning sketchbook stuff and the occasional re-blog of something interesting (and art-related) I've found on the internet.
With that said, please come check out my new website at meagantrott.wordpress.com.  In addition to my drawing and painting, it also showcases my digital and game-related work that I haven't posted here.

Updated Artist's Statement

A childhood spent beneath vaulted arches has led me to associate flowing drapery, beams of light, and certain gestures with holiness.  Yet I have found holiness elsewhere: nature, ancient myth, and especially the human body.  All these speak to a more tangible sanctity that exists in our world and to mankind’s intimate relationship with it.  Through carefully-crafted paintings and drawings I express my reverence for all things sacred.  My images are eclectic, rather than confined by any specific dogma.  Catholic and Pagan symbolism blend seamlessly amid figures engrossed in ritual or meditation.  I hope that my work can inspire an appreciation for things immaterial, like the sensation of ritual, which lie just beyond the reaches of our understanding.
