"Meg Ingraham was first in her Grand Junction family to attend college (Western State Gunnison) and the expectation was to study hard.  "It's difficult to be distracted when it's 40 below zero" she laughs.  "so my focus went right into the art."  After receiving her BA, she became a Master Printer vie the Tamarind Institute of the University of New Mexico.  But soon enough, Ingraham turned to the intimacy of painting.  Animal-themed oils and acrylics were borne of children demanding constant production from their creative mom.  She also paints figures in order to keep her drawing chops and says her work is:"Wacko, because that seems friendly and inviting."  Ingraham creates in the Blue Silo in the Rino Art District."  Daniel Cook
