Medium: Mixed Media
Artwalk 2017: Literacy Council of Central Alabama, 2301 1st Avenue N
Melissa Jones moved to Birmingham with her family in the early 80s. Through out her young life, she always felt a strong passion for art, design and history. Melissa received her BA in Fine Arts/Graphic Design; and her MAE in Art Education. Melissa’s artwork consists of many different mediums but her love of typography, graphics, textures, and relics of the past always seems to find their way into whatever medium she’s presently exploring. Her most recent work has a sense of haunted whimsy with a unique combination of present and past.
Melissa is currently a high school art teacher and local artist. You can find her work at Naked Art Gallery, located in Forest Park.
