Canadian Visual Artist
Melissa is a visual artist living and working in Winnipeg, Canada with her son. She graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2003 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She now works in marketing and graphic design, yet the paintbrush is never very far from her hands. Melissa`s mixed media pieces are often created on canvas with plenty of collage, acrylic paint, markers and splashes of tea. Found objects like beads, leaves and dirt often find their way onto her work. Organic shapes and lines feature heavily in most pieces. Her inspiration comes from an interest in psychology, feminism, advertising, surrealism, and nature. Contact Melissa about original works, prints or other inquiries.
