As a visual artist, Meg is interested in the differences and similarities of global social cultures. Living in different cultures and trying to fit in, she is always changing herself by learning a language and adjust to to different culture habits. Painting has been a guide for her to be able to let go and take risks and transform. On the canvas, she can be free and fearless. Her paintings are bright in colors and bold of spontaneous decisions. The material she uses is mainly acrylic paint and in her collages she uses fashion magazines. Her goal in her expressions is to awaken in the viewer eye a sense of joy.
