Who Am I?
Hi! I'm Megan Carty... I am known for my abstract floral paintings that are vibrant and color-drenched for people who have a flair for bold statements and tailored style. I want to deliver uplifting energy to your well-dressed walls!
Megan Carty is a toe-tappin' finger-snappin' artist who makes bright boho-chic paintings for style-mavens who have a flair for bold statements and unmistakeable style. Through her bubbly personality, her use of bright colors, and her inspiring messages of joy and mindfulness she's here to bring you JOY and deliver ZING to your well-dressed walls!
Her colorful art has been featured by Anthropologie, Minted, Homegoods, Maine Home & Design magazine, Maine Cottage, the Improper Bostonian, Glitter Guide, The English Room, Loom & Kiln, Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital and The Boston Daybook. When she's not joyfully slinging the paint you can find her listening to records, hiding from her three young kiddos, indulging in bad reality television (that MAY involve “real housewives”) while savoring a delicious hot chocolate. Her awesome husband Chris always adds just the right amount of marshmallow!

My goal is to inspire others to express themselves either through their decorating choices or through their own creativity. Twelve years ago I had a thriving business as a luxury stationery designer and letterpress printer. I was happily married, we had our own home and I finally had all the things I’d ever dreamed. Except, I wasn’t happy. I felt unfulfilled and without purpose. I was constantly feeling like I was made for more! I had been afraid to answer the calling in my heart to create art that came from my soul. Afraid to ignore what everyone else was doing and focus on what would make MYSELF happy. I had gone to art school but never fully trusted that I could make a living from my own original paintings. I never even tried! (so sad!) After endless days of repeating the same routines over and over I finally decided to just pull out my old paints and doodle in my sketchbook just for fun and it reignited that missing fire inside of me. The thrill and magic of creating something from nothing! Ever since that day I’ve explored and found ways to shed the layers of fear and negative mindset around my artwork and open myself up to the contributions I can make with my art…to show up for myself without asking for permission or praise from anyone but myself. We spend our childhood trying to please “society” and we spend our adulthood undoing all those layers of insecurity we’ve built up! You have permission! I have permission. Everything is unfolding in huge ways and I’m so grateful I embraced my bravery all those years ago…you can too!
