Melissa Monroe's artwork is a personal display of vulnerable emotions. Figures and forms show themselves authentically. Beyond their personas they stand in true form to be observed. For the viewer they act as mirrors for self reflection. Her art is timeless, and finds the viewer in places that have not yet been, the art acts as puzzles leading to the future. Monroe is a multi-disciplinary artist creating her visions in textiles, sculpture, and acrylic paintings. "In the past year I have expanded my understanding of texture and shape creating hand tufted textiles. My designs are informed by my experiences painting and my love for pattern and abstraction. Each new medium I work with informs my process, weaving and connecting each new idea into all of my mediums. This in turn expands my iconography and purpose." Monroe lives in Portland, OR and is self taught. She has been a full time artist since 2013, since then she has been collected and shown internationally.
