Teacher Profile: Melanie West
Melanie lives in the woods of Maine, surrounded by a plethora of wild life, including moose, bob cat, fox, coyotes, lots of song birds, wild turkeys and of course, ravens.
What drives Melanie’s current work with polymer and mixed media is a life long fascination with Nature’s use of extravagant forms, colors and patterns. Nature never ceases to amaze, and she has always been compelled to answer that amazement in her work.
Melanie’s vessels and wearable art express a very personal, sensual experience, using a dream like impression of Melanie’s unique vision of Nature.
