Megan is passionate about drawing, especially the expressive quality of the markings that result, communicating three dimensional form on a two dimensional medium. Megan's core practice is directed towards exhibitions however when her schedule allows, Megan undertakes commissions, working in three dimensional mediums and installations within her community.
