While living in her mud hut, traveling the bumpy country roads on a motorcycle, and learning to dance with the village women, Meg began to fall in love with the beautiful sights, sounds and people of this country. She documented her experiences in photography and film, and used these images in presentations on Malian culture to American High School students upon her return. Inspired by her experience and the beauty of Africa, Meg also began to paint scenes from her travels. Many of these paintings are featured on martagrecchi.com.
Committed to cross-cultural understanding and the transformative power of education, Meg has taught English, Spanish and Italian in the United States, Venezuela and Italy. Meg currently lives in Tucson, Arizona, where she teaches English as a Second Language to recent immigrants.
