Meghan Faulkner is a 19-year-old self-taught visual artist located in the Illinois countryside. Largely influenced by Dutch painters of the seventeenth century, her photos aim to open the eye to moments otherwise considered mundane; carving the everyday out from the darkness and into the light. Her work can be found in private collections, exhibitions, and curators' homes across the country. When she's not taking photos, she can be found chasing the odd ray of light, studying nature, and wandering through fields; forever in search for the break in darkness, the life in death, and the beautiful in what's not.
