In her work, Meagan Donegan often uses images of animals to represent symbols and spirits. To her, symbols such as nomads, cowboys, colonists, and sages represent the idea of sacredness, personal space, and boundaries. Donegan is also one of a twin, and often explores her shared childhood--and the broader implications of close connectivity to others--in her art.
