Red Meegs

Born and raised in Minnesota, USA. Living in Japan since 2011. Artist, haunted house actress, and concert-goer.

She has been drawing from a young age. Her grandfather was a professional artist and kept an art table with supplies just for her and her sister in his basement studio and always encouraged and supported them.

For formal training, she took a few drawing classes in high school and university. However, most of what she does currently has been self-taught through a lot of experimentation and trial-and-error.

In 2009, she interned at an art gallery and event as a student in Tokyo, Japan. This opened her up to the world of Tokyo’s underground art and changed her life completely. She realized there is a place for everyone and their art in the world, regardless of background, style, medium, etc. and eventually decided to start taking art more seriously, not as a hobby, but as a way of life. She began believing in herself as an artist and pursuing the passion that had always been there. She is always trying to grow and evolve as an artist.
