This is going to be strange.
It’s going to be strange becasue as I normally write about other artists, I now have to write about myself which feels…pretty weird. Herewego.
[SP]*: How long have you been an artist?
Meg: I’ve been creative since I can remember.
[SP]*:Tell us about your background.
Meg: My background is a little all over the place. I got my degree in painting and illustration, I’ve worked with children, done public art, as well as graphic design. I like to write- I have a personal blog as well as a cultural blog (this one teehee). I also help organize and promote other cultural happenings in the QC Area.
[SP]*:What influences you?
Meg: Music. Film. Books. Other artists. Things that grow. Life in general.
[SP]*:Tell us about your current adventure.
Meg: My work had started to evolve from 2 dimensional paintings and drawings, to these sort of shadowboxes I created out of my drawings.
From there it just became an obsession with drawings, cut paper, and animation. I had this fixation with stop motion animation, and all the camera equipment I need already, so I’m like, ‘Why can’t I just do this?’ And so began a 6 month period of youtube, creativecow, and video copilot tutorials, and somehow this happened. Oh yeah, and it’s going to be part of an installation made from found book pages and other recycled material. I’ve never one this before so it’s a lot of trial and error.
[SP]*:What are your goals artistically?
Meg: To be constantly be producing, and moving forward somehow.
[SP]*:If you could have any super power, what would it be?
