Megan Berkheiser, originally from Pennsylvania, spent much of her time growing up creating puppets in a house filled with folk art and old things.
Megan lived in New York City for many years, where she scoured for flea market fragments and the perfect findings from which to build her three-dimensional illustrations. She constructs miniature sets from her drawings, which she carefully lights and photographs. In 1997, Megan earned a MFA in Illustration As Visual Essay from School of Visual Arts and a BFA in Illustration from The University of the Arts in 1995. She taught at University of the Arts as an adjunct professor for 13 years and currently is a professor in the Illustration Department at Savannah College of Art & Design.
