My name is Meg, and I'm an artist. I was born in 1986 and raised in the middle of nowhere in Western New York. I have always been interested in graphics, media, and storytelling, and I'm lucky to have had many experiences with these things starting from when I was very young. My mom was a firm believer in the value of technology, so I have to credit her with getting me access to computers and related classes as an elementary school student — it almost certainly inspired my interest in communication which continues to this day.
I love doing too many different kinds of things to stick to just one kind of work, but I most enjoy web design, illustration, and making comics. When I was in high school, I wrote and published a novel for children. I have been producing my own comics and graphic novels for ten years, publishing both on the web and in print. If it involves creating something, it's probably something I like to do.
I am a graduate of the Visual Studies program at the University at Buffalo, with a concentration in Communication Design. Many people ask me what Communication Design is, and the way I like to explain it is that I studied a wide variety of design-related topics and problems as a student. As a result, I have an intimate understanding of all kinds of ways that people communicate visually — whether it's through logo or business identity creation, document and print design, video and photography, or interactive games and multimedia experiences.
I am presently based in Buffalo, New York (go Sabres!) with my husband, Scott, and the world's cutest cat who thinks he is a dog, Milo. Sometimes my hair is blue or green or red or just about any other color. I enjoy video games, photography, comics, cooking, and plenty of other nerd-ly things. I also run marathons sometimes and have a couple of medals.Return to top ^
