My name is Megan Schembre. I first started drawing when I was four. My father worked at National Lead and brought home discarded xeroxes. We kids would draw on the back of them. My mother put the drawings on the refrigerator.

At 26 I went to Italy to study drawing and painting. I studied at Studio Art Centers International (SACI) and later at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. I also studied at Charles Cecil Studios.

I returned to America in 2000. I began taking courses at the DuCret School of Art in Plainfield, NJ.

I'm also on Etsy and I have a funny little shop, GreenSwirls, on Zazzle.

Here are people I've studied with. Painters are wonderful teachers.
