A Series of Original Abstract Maps
Map Your Dreams And Go
In addition to being an artist, Mel is a mom to two boys, an auntie and a friend to a lot of kiddos.
Her drive for being an artist is to show these kids that a dream isn't just an idea -- it's a destination.
With enough grit, we can turn our dreams into goals. And once we have a goal... we can map it out and go.
These maps are a guide to your own adventure, freedom and self-empowerment.
Pieces from this series are all hand-dyed and can be found in collections from the Rocky Mountains to NYC.
These maps are fictional. They tell a story. Mel calls this abstract cartography.
The 100% cotton, archival quality canvas is hand-dyed using Mel's custom River Painting Dye Method.
The dyeing process takes multiple layers, heat, different color mixtures and ink to attain the final result.
