Melissa Sue Stanley

melissa_LINELOCATION: Dovetail Brewery 2nd Floor Market (Venue #23)


Melissa draws her inspiration from life and experience in the Midwest. Memories of cicadas, storms, and endless fields are captured in drawings and paintings – with a twist of magical realism and using all the tools in her studio.

Following this theme, Melissa also creates small creatures out of wool and wire. These monsters and spirits are stitched together from summer evenings. Both bright and dark, they offer colorful delights as well as dark mysteries.
