Melissa Young

Melissa Young

Melissa completed the Industrial Design course at Wellington Polytechnic in 1989 and then started sculpting in 1993.


Her delicate figurative works have been described as "a social commentary on life, celebrating the lives of women past and present".


New ideas and themes often evolve from conversations Melissa has had or scenes she has observed.  


The naming of the works is also important to her.  She hopes it gives an insight into the ideas behind her work and hopefully express some of her personality and humour.
