Megan is a visual artist living and working between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Her practice encompasses a wide range of disciplines, with projects ranging from drawing, photography and printmaking to sculptural collage, installation and immersive environments. 

Her work deals with the viewer's interplay of architecture and interior where spatial ideas appear impossible and illogical. Her architectural inspired interests go beyond the constructed environment to include drawing, narrative and immersive installations with a particular interest in how images be combined and directly translated into space. 

She attempts to observe space from a variety of perspectives, using unorthodox narratives and drawing rules to create surreal observations.  Her approach often includes complex layering, cutting and projection techniques in a variety of materials. A recurring theme is the psychological distortion of structure, narrative and human perception.
