Meg drew and doodled her way all through primary and high school lessons, university lectures, conferences and meetings. The human form interests her most, particularly faces, and she likes to draw from life. She uses pen and ink, pencil and crayons.

After university, she tried her hand at illustration, comic strip, and graphic design, and was poised to do a graphics course at Lowestoft Art School, where she did a short course in etching.

detailed drawings for characters:

and many shadow puppet shows (effectively animated drawings), and turned some of these into films.

She is also commissioned to design posters and educational materials for wildlife organisations.
