About the Artists

Megan Lee is an adult with Autism. Although Megan has limited language skills, she is independent and enjoys drawing, painting, coloring, pottery, taking pictures, playing video games and participating in Special Olympics in bowling, basketball and track. Megan has the biggest heart, happiest smile, giggling laughter, and that overall positive attitude that is contagious. To her family and friends, she is a ray of sunshine. To the many wonderful people she has met and will meet during her travels and shows. See Megan’s work here. 

Margaret (“Meg”) LeCompte was born in Baton Rouge and, like many other Cajuns who came before her, she “got to Texas as fast as she could.” Meg has always enjoyed the outdoor spaces here, and she especially loves time spent hiking trails around Austin and working in the garden with her grandfather. Meg faces unique challenges as a young woman with autism and limited language skills, but through art, she has found an expressive outlet. Meg takes great pride in her pieces. Through her art, Meg has gained a new dimension of expressive capabilities allowing her to engage with her work and her community and allow her true self to shine. See Meg’s work here.
