About Meredith

Meredith Dittmar is an artist living and playing in Portland OR. Born near Boston Mass, she grew up in a world of pet pigs, horses, hay-forts and spy games . Follow this with an education in computer science, a career in interactive design, a compulsive need to create, and a drive to Seek and you get the major elements of her person and work.

Dittmars human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness . Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. Dittmar believes it is this space we recognize in ourselves, and through convening in that space, the interconnectedness of all things is revealed. She sees the act of spontaneous artistic creation as part of a larger practice of being present, and a way to better understand herself and reality.

Dittmars work is featured in the books Dot dot Dash and Mascotte 2, along with numerous magazines and online publications. In conjunction with her artwork she works as an independent character designer and maintains her company Corporatepig, through which she continues to create thousands of unique handmade characters called “My Guys”.

"I love your art. Art is a big pART of my life. (: Im a Senior at North High School in evansville, IN. Its great. We have a great art teacher, his name is Mr. Siau. Im sure he would love your art as well as I do. Some artists dont get credited enough for what they do, and some people dont realize that art is a passion and it takes a lot of time and work to put into a piece of art. Well just so you know your ar is well recognized by me. (:"

"What an amazingly creative artist she is! You can get lost in the worlds she creates with her molded mediums. They're both child-like and sophisticated at the same time with so much to explore in each piece. Her web site has a variety of fascinating pieces that must be amazing to see in person."
