Megan Fatharly is a Printmaker born in Edinburgh currently in her third year at Falmouth University on the BA Drawing Course. Experimentation plays a huge role in her process and the process of drawing and printmaking allow her to explore the fluidity of material and what this can convey to a viewer. She often uses repetitive processes and manipulates them to their absolute potential. By fragmenting aspects in this way she pieces them back together allowing the viewer to appreciate them in their purest form. This continues with her drawing practice where often mark making plays a fundamental role in capturing what is being described. Recently her work has taken the form of combining drawings and written word. She is a multi-faceted artist who as well as drawing and printmaking engages in collage, and using found imagery in combination.
While creating art is something that allows her to fully engage with the world around her, in the last two years she has started writing about the work of others to document thought processes and continuing a different kind of dialogue with those around her. She is also part of a collective named Behave. where she has collaborated with other artists and it acts as a creative support network.
