ABOUT



Megan Krahn
megjek@gmail.com
Montréal, QC, Canada (currently)



Megan Krahn was born in a small town; middle of Canada, middle of nowhere. Driven by boredom, and an insatiable curiosity, she began to draw houseplans at the age of 10 and thus started her passion for design.

Recently, she graduated with top marks from the Designskolen Kolding in Denmark, and moved to Montréal, Canada. With very little knowledge of French - but very good communication skills in awkward smiles and pitiful facial expressions - she is navigating this new city.

If you have questions about her work, or just want to chat, shout out at:
