My name is Meagan Boyd and I am a visual artist, a mother, a daughter, a sister and an explorer of all things esoteric and mysterious. Some may even call me a witch, a term I find endearing, deeply powerful and even sacred.
I was born in Southern California and a I’m mostly self-taught but did in fact briefly attend California College of the Arts in the Bay Area from 2013-2014. My entire 20’s were dedicated to a life scraping by in punk houses, working minimum wage jobs, and painting all night, occasionally curating my own exhibitions- something I’ve done since I was a teenager. It wasn’t until I was about 29 years old that I began to see a sustainable growth in my artistic career.
I’ve exhibited in various galleries nationally, but have always worked independently without gallery representation. I’ve participated in artist residencies in New Mexico, New York, and abroad in Switzerland. My paintings have been featured globally in various publications including Vice’s Creators Project, Hi-Fructose, Flaunt, Disfunkion, Paulette, and Bust Magazines. You may find my work on the pages of Taschen’s Library of Esoterica- I have contributed paintings to three volumes including: Astrology, Witchcraft, and Plant Magick.
To sum up a quick statement about my work- I will say this: create visual poetry of the sacred and wild elements of existence, usually in the form of painting. I would describe the visions depicted as cosmic encapsulated snapshots of my internal truths- informed by surrealism, esoteric symbolism, and the ancient wisdom of the divine feminine. Through the making of my work, I aim to depict scenes of tender humanness in connection to animals, people, nature, and the collective spirit of oneness.
