Based in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Megan N Miller has always dabbled in creative things.

Art has been sort of a lifeline for her throughout her formative years as well as through turbulent times.

Read on to learn more about Megan and her art portolio.

Megan, What Started You on Your Creative Path?

I’ve always been a dabbler in creative and crafty things. I can thank my Mum for that, I think. She was always great for asking,

“Hey you wanna try this? Cool because I got you all the stuff for it”.

I was also very lucky to have art classes at my elementary school as well optional art classes to take outside of school. It wasn’t until I picked my first art elective in middle school that I really started going for it and developing my own style. My parents got me an easel and paints and a few canvases, and that’s how I started spending my spare time.


As time went on and I had more pressure in my academic pursuits I stopped painting. After some serious mental health crises during my postgrad, I was sent to an ‘arts on prescription’ programme. It allowed me to reconnect with my creative self, to find who I was again.

How Did You Develop Your Style?

My current style flourished when I was with one teacher in particular during my art on prescription programme. She would give me challenges, gently pushing me out of the sage space of what I’d always done. One day in particular, she took all my brushes and gave me bits of card. Those were to be my brushes. With that one change, and the freedom and confidence it gave me to try new things, my style emerged, like it’d just been waiting all along.

What Mediums Do You Prefer?

I like to mix my mediums, but I largely work on either canvas or thick paper, using acrylic paint (I’m not patient enough for oils) which I often will blend with water or plaster for some fun texture. I also like to add chalk or India ink in some pieces for a bit of contrast or to accentuate certain bits of the piece.

Where Can You & Your Work Be Found?

Both me and my work are just at home right now.

I occasionally gift pieces to folks, but other than that, I’m quite timid about displaying my work.

What Else Are You Up To?

I’ve got my hands in a variety of volunteer projects as well as my job. I’m also a cat mum to two beautiful baby girls and the youngest (only five months old) is quite the handful!

What Are Your Goals within the ETChster Community?

I’m slowly building up confidence, and I’m considering sharing more work. It’s great whenever I get an update that someone – who isn’t a friend or family member and thus obligated to like my stuff – likes one of my ‘etchings’.



Are You Open to Collaborating?

Certainly!

Eddie Davis

Back in 2018, Eddie decided there had to be a better way. He a baby on the way and a house full of original art from his ancestors. So he started building an art collecting app to catalog each piece and capture its story. And then he started buying (or trying to buy) original art in his home town of Atlanta, Georgia, United States and quickly discovered that nearly all artists had broken, out-of-date websites and made it nearly impossible to buy their work. So he connected his catalog app to a maintenance-free artist website. Somewhere in the middle, crypto NFTs exploded and then imploded, and the ETChster global community grew to ~15,000 artists and art collectors of all walks of life. Et cetera...
