Meggan Joy (Trobaugh) is a fine art photographer and digital collage artist who constructs images of ethereal concepts. She breaks down the documentary medium of traditional photography and forces it, instead, to depict the nonmaterial, often fabricating her elegantly surreal subjects from scratch. Her detailed and staged imagery references classic iconography and combines them with the natural sciences, adopting the recognizable techniques and subjects from art history and deliberately contrasting them against our modern ideals and convictions.
Meggan Joy is a self-taught artist currently residing and working in Seattle, Washington. Since emerging as an exhibiting artist in late 2015, her work has been internationally published as well as on display nationwide. In 2017, she was awarded the Bronze for the winning entry Warmth by the Moscow International Foto Awards in Fine Art Collage. She also received an Honorable Mention by the International Photo Awards in 2016. In early 2017, she launched and curated Magnify Seattle an annual art magazine that features the work of her fellow Seattle artists.
