Based in the Pacific Northwest, Megan Johns is a visual artist, filmmaker, art instructor, performer and singer-songwriter of 17 years. Her mission is to share and instill love, healing, epiphany and the value of creativity.
Megan completed a BA in Studio Art from Eastern Illinois University in 2010 with a painting concentration, an Associates Degree in Art from Parkland Community College in 2008, and also studied oil painting at the University of Illinois for one year and abroad in Paris, France and Canterbury, England.

In 2020, in association with Lane County Filmmakers and talented friends, Megan wrote and directed her first movie, Feathers, a dark Fantasy/Drama short of 34 minutes. She also composed and performed the Feathers (Original Motion Picture Score) in collaboration with partner, Shannon Swords, under moniker, Bubble Bubble Gum Gum, winning "Best Original Score" at Phoenix Shorts Festival.
In her work, she explores emotional, biological and social aspects of human experience through her lens, returning to themes of apocalypse, conflict, psychedelia and where spiritual and ordinary juxtapose for mystery, uncanny humor and beauty. Portraits occur. Acrylic, Watercolor and Charcoal are 2D favorites, although any medium available is appreciated. She also performs her music solo, with a full rock band and alternately as MoonWish.
