Prairie Wind will be hosting artist Megan Hesser during the August 9th art tour from 5:00 till 8:00. Stop by and talk to this talented artist about her work!
I grew up on a farm in rural, north central Indiana where I found a love of photography at an early age. I would fight to get my mom’s camera from her.
I attended Ball State University where I got a Bachelors of Fine Art with an emphasis in photography. During my junior year of college I traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to study and compare our local culture to theirs. Through the use of photography and writing my seminar class produced a book in Spanish and English comparing the cultural differences between Buenos Aires and Indiana.
I studied multiple mediums during college, including drawing, metals, ceramics, printmaking, bookbinding and photography.
While at Ball State I met my husband. We were married in July of 2008. We live in Cheyenne, Wyoming with our Alaskan Malamute Kaija.
