Noted author of art books, artist Megan Rice, now residing in So. Calif., was born in Mexico City in 1951. When she was a toddler, her parents studied at Black Mountain College in North Carolina…ask Megan to talk to you more about this unusual college that closed several years ago…the college is the basis of her latest book–it made quite an impact on Megan.
Megan grew up among artists and writers in Southern California. She attended Sir John Cass School of art in London, and graduated from
Mills College in Oakland California with a BA in Fine Art.
Megan currently teaches art and creativity classes in a women’s residential rehab. What is a rehab class? What is it like as a teacher? Do students learn slowly or not?
Megan has been keeping a daily journal and making art all her life. She states “I love finding a relationship between my journal writing
and my visual art, and thereby creating a book.” Can anyone be successful with visual art? How different is visual art from art most of us observe?
What are the secrets to a successful art book? Does it have to be in color or can it be big with the American public if just in black and white?
What are the main points of your book, “The Art of Mothering”—????
How can we secure your books? What’s next for you in the literary and art world?
