Hi, I'm Meg. This website is a space to share offerings, perhaps some ponderings, and most certainly artwork.
I am recovering from a lot of things and in the surrender of worn out patterns of coping I am learning to open myself more fully to discomfort, joy, beauty, and pain. I am learning to be more human.
I am inspired by bold, take no shit women, and aspire to use my life to interrogate my privilege and conditioning, love deeply, and support movement toward justice and healing.
An impactful reflection this past while has been to, as Adrienne Maree Brown so eloquently states it, "accept my inner multitudes."
I am gaining skills to be more self-sufficient while also learning to ask for help.
I am learning to use my voice while I simultaneously learn to shut up and listen.
I am doing my best and I get it wrong.
I am full of contradictions, and I am grateful to be learning to hold multiple truths at once.
Located on traditional Lekwungen territory, With Love By Meg is a living and breathing expression of my heart.
I describe my artwork as a dreamscape and am inspired by what is often categorized as feminine - think flowers, breasts, and lunar cycles.
I am guided by the mandala - it’s representation of interconnectedness and wholeness mirrors my understanding of the world.
I love the meditation of creating patterns. My life, sometimes, feels like an attempt to create more healthy, sustainable, and interdependent patterns.
That being said, life is messy and unpredictable. Art work, and woodburning specifically, offers me a channel for precision and perfectionism as I practice letting go of those unattainable (and frankly, uninteresting) qualities in the rest of my life.

How I understood yoga at my entry point, through asana and a desire to heal from physical injury, and how I understand yoga now continues to evolve with depth and context.
My experience in the western yoga world has been dynamic (read the qualities of being human identified above: beautiful, uncomfortable, painful, joyful).
Connecting with teachers who have vast knowledge and understanding of the Yogic tradition has been integral to my continued journey down this path.
