Meg MacKenzie grew up as an “Army Brat” moving every three years nationally and internationally before settling in Arlington, Va in 1980.
She starts drawing/painting horses at a young age. Then during the 1990’s started art classes. Initially she started studying with DC artist Anne Marchand. Then she began studying watercolor classes at The Art League in Alexandria. Meg began to move into exploring abstraction through various classes and workshops in the DC area.
Her current portfolio includes representational abstracts – especially HORSES.
Award winning and acclaimed artist Meg MacKenzie has her work in both international and national private collections. She draws her inspiration from the majesty and power of the horse, and complex color inspired by the early morning and late afternoon sunlight. The acrylic pieces reflect nature’s patterns with texture, moodiness and unexpected color. The watercolor pieces are realistic, simplistic, and elegant yet reflects an unexpected abstract quality.
