About

Margaret Gallagher is an artist, illustrator, and curator based in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. Her fantastic and finely detailed work represents a dual fascination with observing the living and growing things in the world around us, and the imagined worlds of science fiction and fantasy.She grew up as a free-range child on on a farm in Oregon, surrounded by forest, fields, and rivers. She received her BA in art at Occidental College, and continues her education by studying the plants and animals that populate the city, living a short walk from the L.A. River.  She has illustrated a book of meditations by Jessica Snow called 99 Visions.
