Register to submit a question in advance. Megan Fechter, BSBA 2017, is an artist and studio owner out of Atlanta, Georgia with a creative curiosity and passion for design that sparks joy. Her painting journey began as a student at Georgia Tech, playing around with a hand-me-down watercolor set in her dorm room between classes, extracurriculars and late-night study sessions. She started painting for friends, then friends of friends, and next thing she knew, she was experimenting with new mediums for people across the country. And voila - Painted Parcels was born! Since graduating from Georgia Tech and working a corporate job, she took a leap of faith to pursue her dream job - creating custom works of art at her studio, The Reverie, which is also provides a space for other women to explore their own creative endeavors.
