Meegan is a Los Angeles based artist and sculptor.
Her work is cheeky, irreverent and empowering. It’s feminine and feminist, it’s got grit, it's got glamour.
Meegan's sculptures are rooted in the tradition of craft with nods to ancient traditions, spiritual symbolism, warrior women and modern day pop culture. She is playfully creating the ancient artifacts of tomorrow.
Originally from the Bay Area, Meegan lived and worked in New York as an illustrator for the fashion, beauty, and music industries. After traveling to Brazil in 2005 she returned home and sculpted her first derriere. 'Butts are sensual, symmetrical, and also represent a duality that’s a big part of my own personality. I was also so inspired by the body confidence of the women there, I hope to inspire more women here to appreciate their own "ass"ets.'
Her work has been featured in numerous group shows at galleries including Superchief, New Image Art, Fifty24SF, Last Projects, The LodgeLA, JOY Gallery, Modern Eden, MAMA Gallery & Stephanie Chefas ...and in publications including Vice, Paper, Juxtapose and Paulette.
