Megan Fitzoliver

About

MF_edited.jpg

Impossible to categorize, Megan Fitzoliver works in a wide range of materials and places, creating a myriad of objects with meaning; textiles, wood, glass, metal, stone, ceramics, print, plants and even food. Some are ephemeral, most are heirlooms in the making.

The starting point is often an expression of connection and with a Diploma in Product Design as well as a lifetime of exploring different crafts and industries, very often the result is something that has function as well as form.

The Megan Fitzoliver Brush Award is a trophy and the creation of a bespoke brush that i started creating in 2017 and continues still. Awarded annually, at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, it is for the painting by an RI member that “most inspires a connection with the natural world”. Each bespoke brush created, has been connected both to the winning painting and to the artist themselves.
