Megan Slater

Growing up was difficult for Megan. If you ask, she will tell you that she has always been an artist and presently she continues painting.
Her resilience and creativity led her to study at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts and then employed as a pharmacy technician and mental health assistance in a psychiatric hospital.

Among other experiences, Megan spent her 20’s following the bands Phish and the Dead by selling jewelry and edibles. She helped run an off the grid organic farm in Maine; she also grew medicinal marijuana in California. Megan was the owner of a health food store; she was also a barista, a waitress, and, repeatedly, a florist.

After her son Oscar was born, Megan was referred to HomeFront ArtSpace, a place that quickly has become a refuge as she sews, paints, up cycles, and repurposes donated materials. HomeFront ArtSpace has become for Megan a space where she has been the happiest. Here she has been able to share her artistic talents and life experiences and has become a successful professional artist.

“I like to feel good all the time, and ArtSpace makes me feel good.”
