Melissa Young works generally in bronze to produce delicate figurative works. Melissa Young’s bronze works have been described as ‘a social commentary on life, celebrating the lives of women past and present’.
Melissa likes experimenting when sculpting; new ideas and themes often evolve from conversations that she’s had or scenes that she has observed. The naming of the works is also important to her. She hopes it gives an insight into the ideas behind her work and hopefully expresses some of her personality and humour.
Currently she has work in private collections in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, USA, Canada, England and France.
