Melinda Shea’s artwork crosses several disciplines, including jewelry and collage on glass. Her jewelry incorporates richly woven metal with gemstones and Murano glass beadwork. In her collages, she treats glass as a canvas, telling visual stories that incorporate themes from architecture, natural history, and Baroque aesthetics. Melinda’s collages are lush with detail and symbolism, set against backdrops of beautiful handmade decorative papers. Melinda is a retired architectural designer. When she is not working in her studio, she can be found playing piano or working in her gardens.
Melinda’s artwork is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
