Melanie Testa's quest as an artist is to ensure that her mind, eyes and hands convey the same visual thought. This takes practice and skills that she is committed to obtaining and maintaining every single day and with each new idea. She uses her skills and builds upon them whether she's working in cloth, paper or any other medium. Hey, the way Melanie sees it... this is the job of an artist!
Melanie graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology in Textile/Surface Design in 1999, and has written two books, Dreaming from the Journal Page and Inspired to Quilt, as well as producing a DVD entitled Print, Collage, Quilt. She teaches in person workshops, does informative lectures and has even branched out to teaching online. She's a modern-day Renaissance artist!
