Originally from Bristol, Tenn., Meghan O’Connor received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking from East Tennessee State University in 2003, and a Master of Fine Arts from Clemson University in 2007. Since 2005, Meghan has been an active member of Southern Graphics Council, where she has organized and participated in international exhibitions and portfolio exchanges. She has assisted more than 30 artists at Frogman’s Print & Paper Workshop in Vermillion, S.D. Meghan enjoys spending long hours in the printmaking studio getting her hands dirty, listening to music, teaching workshops, and collaborating with others. Currently, she teaches foundations and printmaking courses at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

O’Connor states, “The act of making art is my attempt to feel in control. I am processing my everyday experiences and looking at relationships: how we treat each other and how we treat ourselves. Most days we are faced with choices in our lives, distractions and change. With these daily choices, we often end up with short-term fulfillment – as opposed to long-term contributions to positive wellbeing. My work is about being aware of these self-destructive tendencies and the inherent struggle that results upon this realization: a fight for self-control.”
