Meaghan McRae



Port Moody, B.C

Meaghan comes from a family of musicians and artists, with both her grandmother and her great grandmothers being painters. She has been an artistic person her whole life, and has explored the mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture and photography, among others. She cites her family heritage (Gitxsan, Celtic, and Norse), the beauty of nature, rock n roll, and visually bold styles such as Baroque architecture as being the greatest influences on her work. Meaghan studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and graduated from the Jewellery Art and Design program at Vancouver Community College (VCC). Meaghan favours bold, androgynous designs that remind the wearer to be fearless in celebrating who they are, without pretense. She hopes to push wearers (any age and gender) toward larger scale pieces not as statement jewellery, but to be worn proudly everyday.
