Artist Statement:
The French poet, Antoine de Saint-Exupery said, “To be alive is to be slowly born.” This speaks to me of the mystery of the creative process and the surprise of what emerges forth from the union of my heart, brain, eyes and hands. To be creative is to participate in the birth of the universe.

About Megan St. Michael:
I began my creative life with formal training in photography and graphic art, and the lessons learned – light, shadow, composition, and design – inform my mixed media pieces now.
I pursue my artistic vision incorporating diverse media and approaches to using them. Beginning with the beginning in mind, the end result is a product of my ongoing creative thought and action process. I am intrigued with negative space, which reveals patterns, cycles and the elementals that emerge from those landscapes.
A lifetime of creative endeavor is the thread that weaves its way through my career. I attended Vancouver School of Art, later known as Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and spent the next 15 years as a photographer and graphic artist.
I have never stopped experimenting and creating, painting, landscaping, and anything else that caught my imagination.
Now I have reclaimed my passion and have returned to the studio full time. I invite you to view my work in my online gallery at www.meganstmichael.com

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.

The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.

Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.

We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
