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.

We are super excited to have Melissa exhibiting her Earth Elements alongside friend and fellow artist Anita Barrett this Winter.
She will also be displaying a selection of her fabulously creative eco dyed fashion creations!!!!
