2016 Winner: Megan Carty’s paintings


Love is always in bloom with Megan Carty’s custom paintings, which make bridal bouquets and boutonnieres last forever. “People who are just married are setting up a home together and need to fill their walls with lovely things,” Carty says of her commissioned wedding work, which she’ll hand-deliver to newlyweds within 30 minutes of Boston. One thing they won’t ever find in the final product: the color black. “I love to create unexpected combinations of vibrant, happy color,” she says, adding, “I put all my happiest vibes into what I do.”
