Born in Seattle in 1988, Melanie is a first-generation Taiwanese American currently pursuing an MFA at the Burren College of Art in Co. Clare, Ireland. She completed a BA at Western Washington University, Fairhaven College in 2011 with a self-designed interdisciplinary degree entitled 'Art as Cultural Awareness.'  Her work examines themes of connection and disconnection. A limited color pallet, often black and white, is used to explore the relationship between self and other, and the magical third element that happens in between.
