Meghan Spiro

artist, photographer, art director

I’m a survivor, a storyteller, a healer, a mother, a seeker of love and wisdom, an artist, and creative director.

My professional work is focuses on food & wine, lifestyle brands, products and portraits, working within the Hudson Valley, NYC, and beyond.

My artwork is known for exploring intense female struggles like domestic violence, sexual assault, miscarriage, as well as radical methods of healing, spiritual journeys of wisdom, my roots in Native American ancestry, the sacred feminine and masculine, plant & animal medicine, and connection to Mother Earth. Also a poet, I sometimes blends my poetry with my artwork. Although surreal, I draw much of my creativity from my own life and practices.

I receiving a Bachelors in Photography and Motion Picture Sciences from The Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA in 2002. From 2003-2006, I worked as a coordinator and producer in television for the Food Network and Fine Living Network, on 6 different series and 20 different specials yearly. In 2006, I began working as a photographer, designer, and web developer in New York, specializing in commercial photography and full branding campaigns, primarily working with small business and food publications in the Hudson Valley and NYC. I also freelanced as a prop buyer and coordinator for fashion shoots, as well as produced corporate videos. My clients over the last 15 years have included World of Chris Collins, NASA, Neiman Marcus, Vogue Italia, The Roundhouse Beacon, Zagat Wine, Cider Week, Valley Table Magazine, The Hand Foundation, Wood Fire Food, Rock and Snow, Reservoir and Wood, and Coppersea Distillery, and Merchant’s Daughter Hard Cider.

Throughout the many roles I find myself in, I’m happiest when I can offer a more holistic approach to insuring a cohesive brand as an art director, developing the logo, style guide, web design, web development, print collateral, photography, and social media tool kits. I enjoy building brands and igniting opportunities in taking them to the next level, year by year. 

Bridging the Divine

Mind, body, spirit heals through the prism of energetic vibration, chemistry, and consciousness, an alignment understood by ancients for millennia. Our dis-ease occurs when we are misaligned from our divine. Shamans are the bridge, offering antidotes with a trinity of medicine: plant, animal, crystal. Combined, they weave a wholistic path to bridging the divine.
In this photographic and mixed media series, I curated collections of animal medicine, plants, and crystals to form antidotal offerings to the mind.body.spirit in crisis, thematically addressing the cycles of human evolution: the destroyer, the warrior, the dancer, the divine. Each medicine offering is a call to realign, channel wisdom, and elevate your vibration to divinity.
When sitting with these relics, I considered the sacred masculine within me to lead the way. Recalling the grace of the shaman in my ayahuasca ceremony, the sacred masculine cultivates a safe space while expansively leading you towards your best self. There’s been so much revival of the sacred feminine; the world is ripe to witness the healed masculine.

Without Fear and Full of Love™

I’m a survivor of domestic violence. I’ve spent the last ten years healing from that trauma, and in that process, I’ve been developing artwork that psychologically explores abuse and my healing techniques and wisdom. Beyond externalizing my journey, I’m hoping to help heal other survivors, or at the very least, remind them that they’re not alone. This collection of art and poetry is entitled Without Fear and Full of Love™.  The artwork explores bold psychological statements of my journey, sometimes using graphical interpretations, deity influences juxtaposed with surreal, and often disturbing self-portraits in nature or elements of nature. The art show premiered at BAU October 2019. The book will be launched 2021.

Bella Monnezza

I also debuted another series May 2019, Bella Monnezza (Beautiful Garbage), inspired by the beauty I found in composting daily. I’ve collected various food items, plant clippings, dried flowers, and wasted spices over the last year and a half as subject matter for this series. Using my food styling skills, I crafted the compost, playing with its intuitive forms. This show debuted at the Hudson Beach Glass Gallery May 2019.
