Megan McGaffigan is an artist with roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a young adult she spent a decade living in Montana riding horses and working as a printmaker to sculptor John Buck. She holds a BFA in Metalsmithing from Montana State University and an MFA from California College of the Arts in Jewelry/Metal Arts. Her work parallels her daily life: intertwined with animals, forged by process, full of beautiful objects, and often accompanied by photography.
Her most recent works are focused in the exploration of duality of place and longing which have been markered by her relocation from Montana to the Pacific Northwest. She currently lives and works just outside the Portland metro area (Oregon, USA) with her husband, flock of fancy chickens, 2 spotted dogs, 1 giant horse, and "his" little white donkey.
