Hey there!

I'm Megan Cassidy and I am an illustrator living in the charming city of Portland, Maine. Using paints and pencils I am often inclined to create scenes exploring the relationships between animals, humans, and the natural enviornment. I am a recent graduate from the Maine College of Art in Portland, ME, and previously studied at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY. I'm originally from the quaint town of Brookhaven, NY.

 

Along with my passion for illustration, I am also an avid reader of fiction, fantasy, and folklore, an amature baker, a lover of cats, and I enjoy spending as much time as I can among flora and fauna.

 

Thanks for stopping by!
