Originally from Massachusetts, Melody has always had a passion for the arts and creative expression. As a child, she developed a talent for drawing and painting with encouragement from her parents. She is a multi-faceted artist with a wide range of mediums including ceramics, watercolor painting, textiles and silk painting.
Drawing inspiration from the beauty and patterns of nature, she loves the way light and colors dance together. Melody's art expresses the moods and emotions of the wild places she explores in the desert plateaus of southern Utah where she lives.
Although she studied art in college, Melody is mostly a self-taught artist. Her hands are always seeking new techniques and textures. Since 2014 she has been exploring textile arts with a focus on felting. Her most recent passion is creating felted "pottery" from merino wool and other fibers. The final outcome of Melody's felted pieces always reflect the magic and mystery of life.
Melody produces a varied body of work that has gained her a considerable following. Her artwork is included in numerous private art collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. She also has shown her work at the Escalante Canyon Arts Festival since 2015. As an artist, Melody invites us to view the world as a magical panorama of infinite possibilities.
