Meet The Artist - Meighgan GladdenI'm so excited to introduce you to another artist from the Kingwood Studio! Meighgan Gladden is something special! We're honored to "share" her with The Woodlands studio and enjoy every minute we get with her! Her personal artwork is creating portrait and pop art paintings and then embellishing them with sequins, beads and glitter applied one at a time with a toothpick. Such patience! Be sure to check out the links to her work at the bottom! It has to be seen to be believed!
Without further ado ... this is Meighgan's portrait of Prince immediately after his death ... and a little more about Meighgan.
