Hello, I'm Megan Russo!
I create works on paper that are humorous yet sinister,
drawing the audience into a dreamlike reality.
I am a joyful creative. I have a passion for setting a stage that all artists can shine on, by building an inclusive and detail-oriented environment. I pride myself on being a support system, putting the needs of those that I work with and for as one of my top priorities, while truly enjoying the ways I can help those around me.
I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati with dual focuses in Silkscreen Printmaking and Photography, with a Certificate in Creative Writing. I was the thesis assistant for my graduating section, and worked alongside our adviser to organize student written work, allocate space for final project presentation, and represent the best interests of my peers on the DAAP Works Committee.
My work has been published in Retrospective by Palm Sized Press, Issue One: Royalty by Royal Rose Literary Magazine, Issue 4 of Drabblez Magazine, and as the cover art of Issue 7: Time’s Up by Cauldron Anthology. I have forthcoming work in Issue 2: Culture of Royal Rose Literary Magazine.
I am a regular contributor for Royal Rose Literary Magazine, as well as a contributor for Palm Sized Press. I currently am the Art Editor for Cauldron Anthology, Production Manager of Nightingale & Sparrow, and a First Reader for Brave Voices Magazine.
I am always looking for the chance to flex my design skills even more! So drop me a line if you'd like to connect.
I currently live in Austin, TX with my husband and our two pugs. When I'm not writing, I enjoy seeing live shows around the city and playing all the tabletop games I can get my hands on.
