ArtistMegan

Megan was born in Kansas on December 1st. During her youth there, her maternal grandmother taught her the fundamentals of knitting, and her aunt taught her how to crochet. Her family relocated once more to Arizona. During her pre-teen years, Megan gained an interested in sewing and became very involved in making costumes for Halloween, and dances. 

Originally, Megan did not have an interest in going to college because she was unsure of what she wanted her focus to be. In the fall of 2009, she moved back to Kansas to attend Benedictine College, and it was there she discovered her love for art, the creative process, and adopted the phrase "Do what you love". However, the art that caught her eye was Fibers. She had been learning different fiber techniques all her life, so she found it pointless not to major in it. After her freshman year was completed at Benedictine, she moved back home and transferred to Arizona State University to major in Fiber Art where the focus of her art was expressing her love of ocean themes. She graduated from ASU in May 2013 with a BFA in Fiber Art.

She was accepted into the Fiber Arts Network (FAN Club) exhibit In Stitches at ASU in early Spring 2012. During the Summer of 2012, she interned in the yarn department of The Grove at Juniper and 30th in San Diego, CA. In Winter 2012, she was accepted into the Annual Undergraduate Juried Exhibition at ASU. In Spring 2013, her work was featured in the Senior Exhibition show titled Subtextiles.

Currently, Megan is living and working in San Diego, pursuing her dream goal of establishing herself as a full-time Fiber Artist.
