About my Art

megan dunagan illustrator pattern designer tutorials

To me, art is never perfect and that’s my favorite part; there’s always something to new to discover, dive into, and laugh about.  No matter the collection or illustration, I'll research, then sketch a ton of ideas and see which one I love best (or make me laugh hardest!) and run with it.  With a background in photography and 10 years in textile design (including almost 7 years at Robert Kaufman Fabrics), I enjoy the technical side of creating and love the process of my art: Painting with traditional or digital media, then finessing using digital techniques.

About Me

Hi, I'm Megan! You'll find me in Orange, California with my Engineer-man and our lady-cat named Ripley who dreams of fighting aliens but will be okay with chattering at birds on Cat-TV (aka the window).

I enjoy enchiladas, practicing yoga, scrunching baked potatoes, Scottish accents, watching all the BBC shows, knitting when it's "California cold", traveling (not tourist-ing), listening to historical romance audiobooks, extra-garlicky pesto sauce,  drinking my earl grey, Doctor Who, the sound a fog horn makes, rose gardening, rubbing my cat's ears, and making lists.

TL;DR I'm a nerd who likes food, British television, cats, and making art!

Art Collective

I'm a proud member of Pencil Parade art collective!  We are four ladies who met in online courses in 2015 and we now consider ourselves friends & confidants in our businesses.  We exhibited for the first time at Blue Print in 2017 - expect to see us next year, too!
