ABOUT MEG U.

Art has always been an important outlet in my life, starting with polaroid collages on my bedroom wall and cutting up old books to make the pages into something beautiful. I didn’t even process photographic art as a form of career until my early twenties — before it was just an essential piece of my lifestyle. I feel truly humbled and lucky to put food on my table doing what I wholeheartedly cherish. Throughout the journey of evolving and improving my craft, I have learned how complex and different each one of the relationships I have made are, and how much love I have for so many people I meet. I feel lucky to witness such tender and special moments.

My needs are pretty ordinary: to love and have the means to always love. I can laugh and cry in the same breath. The intensity in which I feel things has constantly been my greatest curse, and my greatest gift. I’m incredibly eccentric, silly, tender-hearted, and accommodating. I surround myself with good friends, good food, red wine, the most beautiful family of furbabies, and a love of art so fierce that I still get butterflies every time I create something I am proud of. 

My life is simple, but full of so much more than I ever thought could be mine.

Describing myself is not my best quality, but I truly hope that my work will say a lot more about me than I’ll ever be able to.

Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.
