Megan McKenzie, Eureka, CA Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement Good Day!
Thank you for taking the time to come visit my images and getting to know me in some small measure. I hope you enjoy your time here. I would appreciate it if you would email me so I can get to know you too.
In 1980, I was stricken with total blindness. I was dying from the disease and was told the only way to save my life was by amputating my eyes. I did not let them do this and that night I had a life-after-death experience in the hospital. On the "other side", a presence told me "It's not your time." and I was instantaneously back in my body. I was in so much pain I would have been relieved to have died to find relief.
Three months later, through unexplained means, my vision was completely restored. I have no vision defects other than age-related reading glasses. I can only attribute it to a divine miracle as medical doctors had no explanation for the cause or cure. God had a reason for me to live and see well.
I have become a "fisherman" of images and people's emotions. I am happiest when I have a camera in front of my face and when I am sharing those emotional moments with my subjects.
