About Me

About the Artist: Meghan has been a professional artist for over 15 years. She specializes in the horror genre, with pen and ink as her usual medium, but also works in watercolor and photomanipulations. Her work has been described as ‘Darkly comical, easily one of our top artists.’ by Tom Moran of Side Show Press; ‘Setting the bar pretty damn high for shock value.’ by Pete Mesling of; and ‘An incredible talent.’ by author Douglas Wright. She also works across the country as a director,actor, and scenic designer.
Artist’s Statement: Art, for me, is about emotional impact; creating mood through contrast and negative space. The visceral reaction to an image is what I’m after.
