/


Megan Brown is the artist and owner of The Pretty Pickle in Fairmont, WV. Her work is primarily created using resin, pressed botanicals, wings/bugs, and other items from nature. Megan is self-taught, a Tamarack artisan, and began her business in 2010. 

Each product is carefully preserved in resin, sometimes within a bezel and other times in the objects natural form. The process can take up to 3 weeks, depending on the structure of the item or depth of the bezel.
