Senior Exhibition 2004 Megan Abrahamsen
      My work is merely a response to, and an expression of, the things that I see and the way that I interpret them. Currently, most of my work revolves around the human figure, both in printmaking and in drawing. To me, the figure is one of the most interesting and natural forms.

      I use printmaking as a means to push my creativity and ideas. What I like most about printing is the process and the vastness of the medium. It allows me to be inventive with different tools and processes to achieve the outcome that I most desire. Not all of the processes appeal to me equally, but in the end, it’s the result that drives me toward one or the other.

      Drawing is ultimately the basis of everything that I do. When I draw, I am particularly inspired by the way that light hits my subject. Even if a drawing is visually accurate, I feel it is most successful when aspects of myself are shown through the work unintentionally. Art is really important to me as a student and as an artist, but it means the most to me when I am able to share it.
