I am Meg.
And you are always welcome here.
First and foremost, I want to thank you for visiting my website and viewing my work. It means the world to me to be able to share my art with others. My road to becoming an artist has definitely been a winding road, but I am so thankful to have ended up here.
I began drawing at an early age, and especially loved drawing animals. At age 11, I began taking drawing lessons from Linda Fisher. She was not only a brilliant artist, but a brilliant teacher, and I owe my entire artistic foundation to her.
After graduating high school, I pursued other interests in Animal Science and Human Nutrition. Ultimately, I decided on a career in the arts. I graduated in 2015 with a Fine Arts Degree - Drawing and Painting with a minor in Marketing from The Ohio State University. In 2019, I was offered the life changing opportunity to complete a tattoo apprenticeship under Iggy Seeney at Aion Tattoo and I began tattooing in January 2020. It was a decision that has forever changed me, my perspective, and my career as an artist.
My path wasn't straight and narrow. It has been full of twists, turns, opportunities, and setbacks. Often times I felt as if I was just going in circles. Today I am forever grateful for every challenge and internal struggle I have faced. It has not only shaped me, but also my work.
My work today is a product of this self-criticism, self-reflection, and self-transformation. As a runner, rock climber, and nature-lover, I have also been greatly inspired by the outdoors, and all of the beauty that Mother Earth has to offer - beauty that brought me joy and peace and filled my heart with gratitude, even in the darkest of times. I hope that you may view my work and also see that light in the darkness.
Thank you for being a part of this journey.
