Margaret Huey is an ace Thai-American illustrator, cartoonist, and educator based out of Baltimore, MD, forged in equal parts by manga, metal, mythology, and other things that don’t start with the letter M. Her practice is founded in making goofy genre fiction stuffed with queer, decolonial, and feminist ideals that hopefully get her audience to be a little more excellent to each other. Currently, she’s working on her upcoming action-fantasy comic, A Song of Soil and Strife, which is about a young metalhead returning to her family’s homeland to find answers about a very metal family heirloom.
She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration in 2017 and has been working in museum education since 2012. She has taught art and art history for various Smithsonian institutions since 2016, focusing on helping guests & students gain lifelong critical thinking skills, empathy, and empowerment through artmaking and engaging with global narratives.
