I am a mixed media artist located in BC. I work with organic materials to create baskets, lamps and other pieces. I divide my time between Salt Spring Island and Steveston area in BC.

I started my professional artist career in 1997.  I sell my work at Crafthouse on Granville Island and Artcraft on Salt Spring Island.

Nature is my inspiration and I strive to make beautiful objects from natural materials.

    Hi Melanie, your work is beautiful and inspirational. You are obviously enjoying yourself. Hope you and S. are doing well. My travels don’t take me out to BC much these days…but I think often of my trips there. Shona

    Hi Melanie, I have been scrolling through your blog. You are really a mixed media artist in the true sense… moving from gourds to basketry to 2 D paintings… all influencing each other.
