About Megan Dowsett
I am fascinated by books. By stories, their illustrations and by their form – how far can I push the form before it is no longer a book? Books are the means by which I both explore creative boundaries and express my personal journey.
I began to specialise in books eight years ago, making board books for and with my children. At the same time I explored creative formats for a personal diary charting the experience of motherhood, recording memories on paper squares that are stitched into a ‘Memory Blanket’.
In recent years however, I’ve increasingly looked to the natural environment, seeking to nurture a connection with nature through participation work, and reflecting my own journey of discovery through artist books.
