Meg is an Artist, Educator, Arts Advocate and Witch Doctor. She is Samstag Scholar, an alumnus of the San Francisco Art Institute, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, USA and the Space Program, New York. She has a studio-based Doctorate from the University of Tasmania and is the Director of Studio Giblin Inc. which is an incubator for creative agency.
Meg exploits the extreme plastic conditions of painting and drawing as a model for fluid and plastic thought. She synthesises abstraction and figuration to cross cultural and aesthetic boundaries of form; drawing on pictorial traditions from Europe and South East Asia. Her work research interests have evolved through residencies in the United States, Paris, Taipei, Thailand, Tokyo, South Korea and Tasmania.
