WILD LA – illustrations by Margaret Gallagher
Margaret Gallagher is an illustrator in Silverlake, CA. Having spent her childhood running wild on an Oregon farm she comes by her interest in the natural environment honestly – she creates detailed portraits and depictions of animals and their habitats in ink and watercolor.
Her collection, Transverse Tales, is a series featuring animals or species specific to the Los Angeles area. Given our heightened awareness to geographical concerns on this earth, the pieces ask the viewer to contemplate our role in the future of each animal. Thoughtful contemplation reveals a myriad of plants, animals, and insects that look like something fairy tales are made of.
