I like ugly pretty stuff-- and scary sweet things-- and above all else, a good story.

Meg Ripley was born in Ontario and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, surrounded by whales and icebergs. After a BFA from the University of Western Ontario with a focus in drawing and an interest women’s studies, she won a stint as a fry-cook at the local diner. She set her sights on NYC and an MFA in illustration from The School of Visual Arts. The program’s mandatory (ahem, I-can’t-believe-they’re-making-me-do-this) writing workshop came to hold more value than she could have ever anticipated.


Her illustration work for various fashion and design agencies culminated in a tenure as creative director for a brand development firm––but then came her beautiful children, and an idea for a book that she couldn’t ignore.
