M. E. Fuller is a Meander artist, author, and writing workshop facilitator, living in southwestern Minnesota. In early 2021 her visual art took an abrupt turn from an emphasis on illustrative storytelling to an exploration of abstract expressionism. “Creative practice is always about the story for me, the most intuitive story.” The abstract expressionist style allows Fuller to experience the developing work as it exposes complex and deeply felt inner world themes. “It’s where I’ve been trying to get to, or back to, since my first painting efforts in 1976.” A former graphic designer and art director, Fuller retired in mid-June of 2014 to restart a personal creative career. Grant support from Minnesota regional arts councils and the state arts board has contributed to the accomplishment of two novels and the most current collection, Original Forms, of abstract paintings.
