Melinda Joy West Welcomes You

Welcome.  As a contemporary sculptural artistist, I've been exploring the traditional art of weaving with plant fibers since 1985.  Through the artistic process, I enjoy sharing lessons I've learned from my teachers with students of all ages.  I gather materials in a respectful manner, recycling bark off of trees that are being cut down, pruning selectively to encourage the growth and health of plants, and replanting at every opportunity.

Being a hands-on, low-tech type person (that is, non-computer savey), I will do my best to make weekly postings, or every other weekly, about the art I'm creating, learning projects I am working on, and suggestions for what the seasons may have to offer those, who like myself, desire to learn more about the natural world.


  1. How do I get in touch with you about training or work you might have for sale?

  2. Hi Melinda,

    I was in your NCI class in July. It's so good to hear from you again. I was just thinking about how I need some inspiration to get to work on my studio and start a new project and here you are to provide it! Thank you!
    Carol M.
