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 seem to find their way into whatever medium she’s presently exploring. Her most recent work is collage with mixed media. Working with papers, texture and color has given this work a sense of haunted whimsy with a unique combination of present and past. Melissa is currently a high school art teacher and local Birmingham artist.
