Margaux Meganck, a Portland author and illustrator, came to Miss Tosti’s Digital Design class to speak about how she uses Photoshop in her daily work.  She is a published children’s book illustrator, and walked the students through her design, development, and the publishing process, step by step.

Margaux lives and works in Portland, Oregon. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in painting/drawing from the University of Oregon’s Robert D. Clark Honors College in 2008. After graduation she attended two consecutive summers at The Illustration Academy. She worked for two years as a children’s art teacher before making the decision to freelance full time. She works in a variety of media including traditional (watercolor, ink, gouache, pastel, graphite), and digital (adobe illustrator, indesign, and photoshop). She loves sunny walks and rainy sleeps, bottomless teacups, and playing for keeps. She spends her days painting, drawing, writing, and gallivanting.
