MLITT IN THEOLOGY AND THE ARTS STUDENT
Hometown: Bristol, United Kingdom
Education: BA (Hons) Fine Art, Loughborough University
Having developed her own artistic practice during her undergraduate studies, Megan joined the Theology and the Arts MLitt to explore the possibilities of theological engagement through the arts and to further understand the history and future of this interdisciplinary field. Megan’s artistic practice is an investigation into embodied experience of place and the possibilities of spiritual encounter in the landscape, concepts explored through large mixed-media abstract paintings. This has informed her academic interests in abstract art, the transcendent, enchantment of place, natural theology, the epiphanic moment and embodied experience of place. The role beauty plays in drawing people to God is a point of keen interest for Megan as she seeks to explore the unique ways visual art may express the ineffable.
