Meghan is a contemporary painter who grew up in the Yukon and now resides in Powell River, BC. She’s collaborated with Darlene Calwell to create a colourful collection of carved and painted Yukon-themed mugs for the shop ❄️

Meghan Hildebrand’s paintings are constant exercises in innovation and improvisation.   With a unique vocabulary of symbols, she translates her northern coastal landscape into electrifying dreamscape scenarios, each image often alluding to a larger narrative. 

Despite frequent reinvention, her works often return to familiar themes - the childhood dream, a sense of journey over land, and the ‘personality’ of place.  Defined points of interest, doorways and inlets, invite the viewer to enter the image and join the narrative.

Meghan has had over forty solo shows, including a retrospective survey at the Yukon Arts Centre 2012.  Her work has been acquired by permanent collections including RBC, Aimia, and the Yukon Government, and belongs to private collections internationally. Now residing in Powell River, (British Columbia, Canada), Meghan arrived on the Sunshine Coast by way of Whitehorse, Halifax, where she attended Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and Nelson, where she studied at the Kootenay School of the Arts.
