I am Margret Wyman. I draw and paint pin ups. And monsters. And monster pinups.
I believe Mondays are for mermaids, Wednesdays are for witches, and every day is Halloween. Want to learn more? Check out Instagram @StarkGravingMad for new mermaids, witches, and so much more every week!
I was born in 1983, in a town in Maine so tiny it can't be found on any maps. I grew up with the love of art and horror movies inherited from my mother, and loud music from my father. After being encouraged to create as much as possible--both artistically and personally--I moved to California in 2003, and from there worked to earn an apprenticeship with a tattoo shop . There I not only learned how to tattoo, but I also about lowbrow art, dirty punks, psychobilly music, and just how important coffee can be.
I've worked in tattoo shops on both sides of the country, until I settled in the San Fernando Valley in 2010. From there I began working with local bands, companies, and venues for everything from merchandise and logo design to gig posters and custom illustrations. I am happiest creating, and trying to teach my young daughter the same punk rock ethos that's been passed down to me.
