About the Artist

Melissa Knight is a batik fabric artist. Using the batik fabric as her palette, she creates intricate collage artworks. She also explores color through weaving with the batik fabric. Explorations in color, light and shadow are made through patterning and the luminesce of the fabric.

In addition to creating art, Melissa facilitates community-based workshops and projects. Space is provided with intention to create art and nurture community. Through community-based projects, Melissa's mission is to collaborate with other artists, exchange ideas and connect artists to their community. Community projects involve creating temporary and permanent fabric art installations that explore concepts of community and connection. These dynamic artworks are created in tandem, woven and pieced together, generating change through art making.
