A little bit about me

My Photo
As a young child I had a 70s style Technicolor patchwork quilt. This was my “nap” quilt in preschool but unfortunately its vibrant colors and wild patterns were so distracting I would spend the whole of naptime looking at all the shapes and colors and trying to make some sort of sense of it all. By the time naptime was over each day, I was always good and tired and ready for rest. Fast forward many years and though I no longer have a crazy quilt keeping me awake, my mind still plays this Tetris sort of game mixing and matching colors and shapes before I fall asleep each night. I imagine it is my mind’s way of clearing itself for a good night’s rest. However, the play of colors and composition are so fascinating and beautiful that I’m drawn to recreate the fluidity and feeling of these images in my waking life. My paintings in oil use abstracted organic imagery and a dynamic palette of earthy color to capture this moment between waking life and sleep.

Megan Bell Studio Winter Sale - Save 10-50% on all original paintings!

It's well below zero here in Minneapolis and that means I'm spending a lot of time at the studio. A lot of time at the studio has got me wanting to make room for all of the new paintings I'm working on so I am having a sale!

I've got a few pieces that I love but that no longer play well with my current work. As a result, they are stored away at the studio and are no longer getting the attention they deserve! The good news is that I am deeply discounting prices on select paintings (more than 50% off!) which means it's a super good time to buy if you're in the market! Additionally, all other work not shown below is 10-20% off through February!

I will have the studio open for First Thursdays in the Arts District (February 4th | 5-9  pm) and also by appointment. Please feel free to contact me with questions or to set up an appointment.

"After That Day" | 66x84" | oil on canvas | Reg. $6,800 | Sale: $3,200

"Late Night at the Studio" | 30x30" | oil on canvas | Reg. $1,100 | Sale: $450

"The Good Life" | 50x38" | oil on canvas | Reg. $2,300 | Sale: $1,100

Small Business Saturday and upcoming holiday hours!

Hi all -

The holiday season is now upon us which means it's also time to spend countless hours searching malls, going online and standing in long lines looking for the perfect gift for that special someone. If like me, that's not your thing and you want to get unique and affordable gifts for those you love, look no further than the Northrup King Building and the over 200 artists that are making original art perfect for gift giving!

I have quite a few Mini Originals again this year, along with slightly larger works framed on paper or painted on cradled panels. I even a hand full of $10 hand painted ornaments! Something for everyone!

Great gift ideas for every budget!
