Megan is a self taught fine artist who is a wife, mother and a sixth generation rancher on her mother's side, and fifth on her father's side. Her deep rooted love for ranching fuels her passion for painting. She loves to paint animals and enjoys capturing their spirit through canvas. She uses texture and bold colours to create her paintings. She started painting with acrylics but has since switched to oil paint.
You'll notice at the bottom right hand corner of her paintings after she signs her name is her families cattle brand. It is pronounced Quarter Circle T. Her family has been ranching since 1897, and they continue using this brand today. It is a great honour to sign it on her artwork.
Her journey as an artist began only in 2017. She attended a local paint night with some friends and as she put brush to canvas, she felt as though she had been painting her whole life. Megan knew in her bones that she was meant to be an artist. She made a decision to commit to her craft and create a business. Waking before 4am every day, she is able to create before her family is away and her day begins. What she calls her "creative flow" comes from something greater than herself: a higher power.
You can follow her on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and TiK Tok to catch her progress videos. Join her mailing list to be kept up to date. She invited you to be part of her journey and would love to hear from you!

Riding horses and working cattle has been a passion of Megan’s as long as she can remember. Throwing a fast loop, working a young horse, moving cattle for miles over vast prairie terrain while working her dogs are moments of joy that fill her soul. Being on the back of a horse as the sun comes up moves her to tears every time. She beams with pride as she teaches her kids everything she knows as they work along side her, watching them blossom. This is what she calls her “inhale”. Expressing all that passion onto canvas is her “exhale”. She is committed to being authentic, and does her best to eliminate the ego during her creative process. This is where she draws parallels to art and working with horses and cattle. “There is no ceiling to learning and creating, as long as we aren’t limited by our self preservation”- Megan Weir.
Using oil paint as her preferred medium, Megan uses two brushes at a time during the beginning stages, as well as her fingers to create interest and express herself. She does this all while jamming to music! Her pallet is limited to primary colours, which means that every colour you see is her own unique signature mix. Bold colours and texture are extensions of her personality, accompanied by her cadmium red signature and cattle brand in the right bottom corner of most paintings.
Megan was featured in the spring 2023 issue of Western Horse Review Magazine and had a lovely article written about her art in an agricultural setting by Kirk Prescott.
She also completed an original painting and a 25 limited edition series for the Building the Legacy Foundation fundraiser commissioned by the Canadian Angus Foundation. She now has two original pieces in the Canadian Angus Association building, one residing in the head office.
Her art was featured at the Jasper Centre in Maple Creek, SK for her art show, “Encounter”, this spring. You can check out her latest show at the FWBA Architect building on 3rd Street, downtown Medicine Hat.
One of her favourite pieces, Blaze of Glory, was sold in Calgary, Ab, at the Deane House for the Pure West Art and Artifacts Auction. It was an honour to be selling her art along side such incredible pieces, an experience she will always treasure.
In Saskatchewan you can find her art at The Cypress Hills Winery outside of Maple Creek, SK, The Kilted Kitchen in Eastend, SK, and the Grocery and Liquor Store. In Val Marie, SK, home of Grasslands National Park.
