ABOUT Melanie Carlstein

Artist Statement:
I love taking something that is old or has been discarded and repurposing it into an interesting and beautiful piece of art. I live in sunny Longboat Key, Florida with my husband and enjoy spending time creating in my studio. I love vintage mannequins, rusty stuff, wood, mixed media, plaster, papers, anything old and a little bit of whimsy.:
