I’m a UI/UX designer for a mid-sized company and a multi-disciplinary artist based in the Greater Milwaukee Area, Wisconsin.

I started Megan McDonald Art & Design in January 2012 after two years of freelancing. I have designed logos, brand identities, websites, signs, flyers, multimedia packaging, and textiles for local and international clients.

My work incorporates traditional and digital mediums and is inspired by music, philosophy, history, symbolism, mythology, folklore, and the relationship between mankind and nature. Many of my pieces are based on collage and contain a range of styles from minimal to intricately detailed.

I have exhibited my work in Milwaukee, Chicago, and Detroit, and have a piece in the permanent collection of the Nek Chand Rock Garden in Chandigarh, India. My work has also been published in Sendpoints Books’ Modern Patterns and Classical Patterns, Color Inspirations by Darius A. Monsef IV, and Collectively Bound: 2009/10 UWM Art Collectives by John Dorn of Collectively Bound. A few of my alcohol ink pieces are for sale on the second floor at Art Lounge in Menomonee Falls.
