Mask Making
Mixed Media


I am a practicing artist based in Naarm/Melbourne. My work encompasses various disciplines including metalsmithing, sculpture and installation and mixed media. I also have skills in drawing and painting, but since 2015 I have chosen to focus on experimenting with various metals to create art jewellery and small sculptures, sometimes incorporating other materials and found objects. http://www.melindacapp.net

Experience in Schools
