Personalized I promise to love you even when we’re old and we still play video games poster
I’ve created art all my life and mostly given whatever I create away. As I mentioned, I’m in love with the process over the product. 2020 was the first year I started taking commissions for murals and paintings. It started as a space for me to keep my own sanity in early quarantine when a friend asked me to paint their wall, then commissions for art on canvas and murals in indoor and outdoor spaces kept rolling in. I began Meg Bourne Wall Art in March 2020 and had created 16 murals and sold several large scale art pieces by December 2020. I feel such deep gratitude that in a very difficult year, I was able to make my work available to the public, which helped me create space for my own mental wellness as well as create a bright spot in other’s homes and in public spaces.

Was there a teacher, relative or friend who particularly encouraged you to pursue your art?
One of the biggest gifts of my life is the community of people that surround and encourage me. I have parents who raised me to believe I can try and fail at anything, but also taught me work ethic and dedication. I have an endlessly encouraging partner and a tribe of women who are all incredibly talented in their own rights but so encouraging of me and my own creativity. We encourage each other to take risks and celebrate the accomplishments of each other. Two of my murals earlier in the year were for close friends Channing Barker and Meredith Benfield, and it’s been wonderful to work with designers like Sarah Smith Designs out of Northwest Arkansas, who has used my work in her own house and for her design clients, as well as Kim Lewis Designs out of Austin — who is a dear friend I get to collaborate with and create for personally. My best friend Brooke LeMasters puts up with my texts in process — “do you think this is done?” I trust her so much creatively that I can take her opinions and criticism on where the work is going or thoughts on a new idea. I feel really lucky to live in Northwest Arkansas as well, as we have myriad creatives that tend to be so welcoming and encouraging of each other. I’m intentional about curating my life to be filled with people who inspire and push me — there truly is something t
