Melanie is a Manitoba-raised artist whose paintings sensitively explore fragile, subconscious states. She received an MFA in painting from Concordia University. A three-time semi-finalist for the RBC Painting Competition, Melanie has exhibited at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Plug-In ICA, MOCCA and The Power Plant in Toronto, the Museé d’art contemporain de Montreal, as well as venues in Glasgow and the United States.
