Meagan Meli received a BFA in Illustration in 2015 from the Fashion Institute of Technology. She is a freelance illustrator native to Brooklyn, NY, living with her husband and three cats. Meagan’s work is highly influenced by historic medical, and occult illustrations, as well as cemetery symbolism. After a series of devastating events, she began frequenting Green-Wood Cemetery as inspiration. Naturally, the theme of death, grieving, and mourning became consistent in her artwork. Meagan's artwork aims to remind us that death is around us, but to accept it in it's forms.
