Megyn Craine is an interdisciplinary artist who sees art making as a process of discovery. Her work is a reflection of how she interprets the world around her. It encourages us to look a little deeper, to question the way we understand our own world and its meanings for us.

Artifact is a collection of work that mixes common materials with various concepts—from Alzheimer’s to Ancient Greece—to reveal unseen connections and create new layers of meaning from our everyday experiences.
