Meg Lemieur is freelance illustrator based in the ancestral lands of the Lenni Lenape, now known as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She illustrates using pen, paper, and digital color. Her work focuses on natural and urban environments and subjects, while lending her skills to numerous environmental and racial justice issues. When she isn't drawing, Meg builds fluffy puppets, plunks away on her piano, tends to her little garden, hikes amongst the tallest trees, and reads about dinosaurs.
Things people have said about Meg...
"On April 20 local artist Meg Lemieur released an illustrated map of the Lenapewihittuk (Delaware River) watershed, complete with plants and wildlife found in the region. “I’ve been illustrating flora and fauna from the region for 15 years, and most of these animals are some of my favorites,” Lemieur says."

"Meg is gifted in many ways! Her talent and artistry are readily apparent. Add to that her personal qualities -- patience, active listening skills, kindness, empathy, and gratitude, among others -- and you have a winning combination. I look forward to working with Meg again."

I created their logo as well as a portrait of Jozef's Grandmother to hang in the shop.
"Meg is a collaborative dream! Working with her on Aqua Marooned! revealed an artist who is creatively playful, ethically rigorous and consummately professional. The game simply wouldn't be the work of art it is today without her input and cooperation throughout the process. It's daunting - to say the least - to bring artists on board to create nearly 300 unique images featuring local flora and fauna that will be reviewed by experts in the environmental field plus loads of corresponding design pieces. The final outcome was far and away better than I ever dreamed it might be and is universally beloved by those that we partnered with on its creation."
I co-illustrated the card game Aqua Marooned! over a 2-year period, which included about 300 unique illustrations as well as package designs and marketing material.
"I loved how easily my vision came to life with Meg Lemieur. Couldn't recommend her enough!"
I painted a mural for Meenal Raval's bicycle shop. Read her blog about the project by clicking the button below!
"The [Water Ways] poster criticises the hydraulic fracturing industry through a single panoramic woodland scene in which every detail tells a story, and the activists, politicians and citizens are represented as plants and animals."
