Meet Nancy Mellon
Nancy works in intense spurts intermingled with tense art cramps, when everything stops, until she meets up with another artist or some fabulous piece of art or a nice day or... and gets juiced again. She works with clay, pencils, acrylic paint, fabric, and junk. Nancy also loves her tree house studio (not a real tree house but she sees leaves and branches out each window) and art mischief with the Jafa Girls.
You can see her work at the Chamber Pot Gallery and here at the Village Artisans, a funky gallery/gift store in Yellow Springs (naturally). Village Artisans is an exciting, cool co-op of 20+ artists. Everything in the store is handmade by a local artist. One of her favorite things to do is to shop sit in Village Artisans. She get to talk with customers from all over the world, visit with her art friends that drop by, and tell people about all the wonderful things that they can do in Yellow Springs.
"I love people, nudes, conversations about big ideas, the color green, intense colors especially next to black, intricate patterns, and Greene County (It's GREEN!)."
