Show Pony is the pseudonym of artist and sign-maker, Meg Tait.

Inspired by a long-term fascination with words, fonts, fairgrounds (and a touch of kitsch), Show Pony creates illuminated artworks & fairground-inspired signs, often embellished with gold leaf and fitted with light bulbs.

Self-identifying as a ‘word clown’, Tait graduated with a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art whilst suspended from the ceiling in a horse costume, under the title ‘Well Hung’. This playful use of words has carried through into her practice as Show Pony.

Works are currently available on show at De La Warr Pavillion and Atom Gallery, London.
