Maggie Lynn Negrete

A SWPA native & Vassar College alum, I am a multidisciplinary artist and designer specializing in illustration, zines, and hand-lettering. My work explores femininity, community, and the occult with aesthetics influenced by 19/20th century illustration, psychedelia and my heritage of printers. An important part of my practice is as an educator, focusing on elevating youth voices and promoting civic engagement through zines, storytelling, and typography.

Additionally, I am proud to work as the Education Coordinator at the Brashear Association and the Pgh Zine Fair where I am able to be a teaching artist and community organizer. 

Please contact me at mgglnt@gmail.com for commissions, graphic design, to read from Adventuring Princesses, teach workshops or for event planning.
