About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist & All Around Crafty Darling
Location Belmont, MA
Introduction My name is Meagan & I'm the beauty, brawn, & brains behind Fussy Gussy (& Crafty Kathleen). I've recently learned that I'm a 100% left brained thinker, which makes so much sense & absolutely no sense, but I'm trying to go with it. It might explain how I'm both terribly romantic & (somehow...also) fairly practical. I love watching (& talking about & writing about) movies & TV. I love, love, love music. I love to dance. I (clearly) love using parentheses. I have a BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design (Providence is the MOST magical college town ever!!) I love what I do & feel fortunate to be a part of the ever growing handmade community.
Interests painting, movies, painting while watching movies, music, art museums, record shops, used book shops, the ocean, dancing, reading, researching stuff, according to Happy Grumpy Twitter analytics LOVE is my #1 interest
