Joseph Melançon MFA, NWS 

Joseph Melançon is a versatile artist whose range of work includes watercolor, acrylic and oil painting as well as collage and sculpture. In his work he interprets lifelong interests such as antique toys, the American Indian, landscape and the figure using abstraction as well as expressive realism. Joseph's works are very personal with a passion for process, composition and the painterly surface. In painting he dissects, simplifies and freely interprets what he sees and feels through the use of composition, shapes, line and color.

 Joseph, who holds an MFA degree, taught for many years at Eastfield College in Dallas and Texas Woman’s University in addition to giving workshops and Lecture/Demos across the US.  Joseph’s design and dimensional production work as curator of exhibits in two science and history museums and his years of building sets and props for television, print media, and industry contributed greatly to Joseph’s extensive knowledge of methods and materials.
