[ creating fine art out of craft & craft out of fine art ]
I'm Meghan. Michigan born, Arkansas raised, living in Florence, Italy. I've wanted to be an artist for as long as I can remember and I'm constantly trying to fulfill that dream. Sometimes it isn't easy and life gets busy or I get lazy, but ultimately it is my passion.
I started binding books when I was little and during university I continued studying classic binding while expanding into bookarts. I enjoy finding a balance between the craft and fine art; the interactive and inaccessible of the two subjects.
Photography just makes me happy and I still remember when I fell in love with it. I was in school and saw the images appear on seemingly blank paper- it was magical. I don't always haul my cameras around with me (my phone is all too easy to fit in a pocket), but I do always take pictures. Sometimes I just take pictures of life as it is: a detail I see in the wrought iron fence, a hillside while driving through Tuscany, my lunch, and sometimes I get to work on advertising projects for work.
