Meaghan SweeneyArtsNotes Newsletter
Meaghan Sweeney (She/They) is a contemporary mixed media artist based in Windsor-Essex. Their work is an introspective exploration of self, analyzing themes of values, personal philosophy, identity, and mental illness. Sweeney’s process primarily emphasizes experimentation and curiosity to create work meant to be felt by the viewer but obscure representationally. Each material used in their practice is an expression of the complexity of the human experience. Sweeney received their BFA in Fine Arts at the University of Windsor in 2021 and received a Beaux-Arts certificate from Collège Boréal in 2016. They are the Vice President of ACWR’s Vanguard Youth Arts Collective.
