Melanie Wesley

Inspired by fairy tales and the natural world, Melanie explores themes of play, beauty and fear to bring forth shadow work and daydream companions……sometimes known as dolls.

Although she is known for her textile work, her art practice is multifaceted. There are realms that can only be reached by picking up a paint brush or revisiting humble childhood materials of paper, cardboard and string.  Her choice of materials along with an intentionally slow process reflects her desire to live in a more gentle world.
