  Please enjoy visiting my online gallery. I am currently working on large sized landscapes of the Fort McMurray area and will post them as completed.    Interplay 2010 was a wonderful celebration of the arts on Franklin Avenue.

Upcoming Event - Country Fair on August 28th. I'll be showing my paintings in the exhibit and as a vendor. Location is Heritage Park from 11 am to 4pm.  

Alberta Arts Days 2009 was a fantastic experience. Fort McMurrayites once again showed their great talent and spirit.  Read the write up about it from Fort McMurray Today September 21, 2009.

Shell People Asked to Donate Art for Yearly Auction

 

 

It’s near that time of year again, when creative Shell employees refine their artistic sides and surprise coworkers with their welled-up talents.

 

On September 18th 2007, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Shell will be holding its 3rd annual United Way - Shell Day of Art, which will see the Shell Centre lobby transformed into an art gallery for an afternoon.

 

Any employee, their family members and even retirees who have a skill for sculpting, a knack for knitting, a way with weaving or any creative outlet, can participate in the auction by donating a piece of their work before Sept. 4th .

 

“The Day of Art is an United Way fund raising event that Shell employees have shown they enjoy and support,” says Donna Tilley, SD Procurement Coordinator with Shell. With Shell matching 100 per cent of the proceeds, Tilley says she hopes to see some real bidding wars going on.

 

“The event allows co-workers to showcase their talents.  You see their ‘otherside’”, says Tilley who is asking that donated pieces be sent directly to her office, along with artist’s name, title of art, brief description of artwork and suggested value to be used as an opening bid .  “It’s interesting for employees to see their coworkers in a different light,” says Tilley.

 

One of these coworkers is Megan Storrar, Albian Tailings Field Engineer at Shell. By day, Storrar works as a short-range planner for the construction of the external tailings facility at the Muskeg River Mine. By night and weekends she unfurls her brain’s right lobes by painting pictures often inspired by Fort McMurray landmarks and scenes.

 

“Most people are really surprised and don’t understand the extent to which I paint,” says Storrar about what it’s like when her coworkers see her art for the first time. Storrar, who has had numerous art showings in various cafés and gallery exhibits, will be donating a high quality giclee print from a limited edition series called ‘Three Sisters’, depicting the idyllic mountain range in Canmore, Alberta.  

 

“Since I have started publishing and printing my work, it has become much easier to donate,” says the homegrown Canadian who loves to travel and mountain bike when she’s not painting. Storrar says that employees who are considering donating art should remember to take a good digital photo of their work before they give it away. “This will help you remember the piece and enjoy the feeling of sharing your work,” she says. “I look forward to being able to share my passion and help raise money for the United Way.”

Canadian artist Megan Storrar was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971 and  grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan. She has been painting since she first touched a paintbrush in grade school, exploring many different mediums along the way. Her formal schooling earned her a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Chemical Engineering from Ryerson University and a Masters of Applied Science degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Ottawa. Throughout her career she has lived in Toronto, Ottawa, Gore Bay (Manitoulin Island), Sydney Australia, Perth Australia, and currently Fort McMurray. A desire to work in mining and the oilsands in particular led to her move to Fort McMurray, Alberta to work for Albian Sands Energy in May, 2005. It was a good move to a great city. The landscape is beautiful and it is a very active, exciting place to be.

According to Picasso we are all born artists, but the challenge is to stay that way as we grow up. This Chemical Engineer has done just that, moonlighting in her spare time as a talented painter.  Storrar has developed her craft over time, honing her skills through evening classes and learning from other artists. While living in Toronto in the 90s, Storrar showed her art several times, with her work being displayed in Toronto’s High Park Library, numerous coffee shops, and in solo and group gallery exhibits.

Storrar loves to travel and tends to paint subjects in series. The latest include float planes as subjects, cityscapes from around the world, cityscapes of Havana Cuba, fallen leaves, and children playing. Some images are from dreams, some from photos and many are from travel sketchbooks.  She also welcomes commissions.

In her spare time, besides painting, she loves to mountain bike, hike in the northern Birch and Jackpine woodland trails, and is training to run a half marathon this fall.
