Melanie Thompson lives and works on Salt Spring Island and in a very small cottage at the Finn Slough on the Fraser River. She has practiced basketry for many years using traditional and non traditional materials. Melanie recently completed the Diploma in Fine Arts at ECUAD. This course work informed her design sensibilities and led to her mixed media work.
Melanie has exhibited and sold her work widely. Her work can be found at the CCBC shop and gallery, Granville Island, BC, South Shore Gallery, Sooke, BC, and Artcraft, Salt Spring Island, BC. It can also be viewed at www.saltspringartistdirectory.com, www.craftcouncilbc.ca and on her blog http://craftymelanie.wordpress.com
