Meet the artist, have a drink, and get a glimpse into Wesley’s practice as a fibre-based artist. (And yes, there’s air conditioning!)
Melanie Wesley’s main ongoing creative focus is fiber based, from hand knits and art dolls to mixed media and custom made wedding dresses. For over 25 years Melanie, who is 100% self taught, has been developing a broad skill set, mastering traditional techniques in all aspects of her media, constantly evolving in expression.
