I’m not sure where I discovered artist Meg Lipke, probably Pinterest. Wherever it was, her paintings interested me enough to click through and download a bunch, saved for a rainy day. My son informs me that today will be the only nice day of the week in Boston, but I’m hoping the bright colors and vibrant brushstrokes keep me going for the next few days.
Meg Lipke was born in 1969 in Portland, Oregon and was raised in Burlington, Vermont and Cheshire, England. She went to the University of Vermont for undergrad and earned her MFA at Cornell. She currently lives and works in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
On her website, she divides her pieces into a few groups, including Paper Tapestries, Small Weavings, Works on Paper, and Batik Paintings. Here is a sampling of the Meg Lipke’s abstract artwork.
