The Biophillia Effect

eco dyed mixed media art and fashion by Melissa Laffy



Central to my arts practice is the application of all the earth’s elements.
I use: earth matter (fallen leaves and foliage), water, steam and heat to imbue an imprint of nature on fabric (always natural fibers like silk and wool)

I then layer on more physical elements to create a feeling that is at one with nature. This process helps me balance my mind, body and spirit, and expresses my true essence.

I will be exhibiting mixed media wall installations alongside my distinctive eco-dyed textile fashion items
