Bio

Meagan Meli is a Brooklyn based freelance illustrator, osteologist, and teratologist. She has an educational background in both fields of illustration and fine arts. This gives her work a unique expressive touch. Heavily inspired by the macabre, medical illustration plates, and old painting methods; she fancifully combines them together in her art.
