Meg is a fine-arts grad­u­ate. Around a year ago, how­ever, she was se­duced by dig­i­tal paint­ing. She loves the ver­sa­til­ity, the speed at which she can re­alise an idea.

“My goal,” Meg says, “is to cre­ate im­mer­sive worlds that cap­ture the view­ers imag­i­na­tion. I in­clude as many lit­tle de­tails as pos­si­ble. This, in my opin­ion, is what makes lo­ca­tions and char­ac­ters come to life.”

Meg’s in­flu­ences range from Al­bert Bier­stadt to Sa­muel Tay­lor Co­leridge. As a pro­fes­sional artist, her work cov­ers card art, book cov­ers and pri­vate com­mis­sions, with one eye on branch­ing into the film in­dus­try.

1 Fel Ru­ins “This was one of my first dig­i­tal paint­ings. I was try­ing to cre­ate a moody, mist-filled fan­tasy lo­ca­tion, while still get­ting to grips with the dig­i­tal process. It was a huge learn­ing curve.”

2 Wis­dom “This was a per­sonal piece in which I ex­plored a more painterly style. I used lots of tex­tured brushes bal­anced with very del­i­cate strokes to cap­ture the fa­cial fea­tures.”

Ve nice “From a young age, I’ve al­ways loved Canaletto’s paint­ings of Venice. Ar­chi­tec­ture is a pas­sion and Venice is full of beau­ti­ful build­ings. But, at the same time, Blade Run­ner and apoc­a­lyp­tic sci­ence fic­tion have al­ways equally en­thralled me. This was a fun blend of them all.”
