I'M MEG!

I'm a fiber artist and stop motion filmmaker. I have exhibited and screened my work in galleries and film festivals across the globe. My collaborative project with Texas A&M Soft Interaction Lab has exhibited internationally and been featured in multiple publications. Through the creation of soft sculptures and stop motion animation, I explore the concept of toxic masculinity present in stereotypes and the online dating world.

 

I received my MFA in Visualization from Texas A&M University in 2019. In 2015, I received a BFA in Animation with a minor in Storyboarding from the Savannah College of Art and Design. During my time at SCAD, I had the opportunity to live and study in Lacoste, France. I currently reside in Huntsville, Texas where I teach foundation studio and animation courses at Sam Houston State University.

Fun Facts: I have a dog named Juniper, I'm a self-proclaimed toast connoisseur, and my stomach can't really handle dairy but I love cheese!
