Melissa Young

Bronze angel by Melissa Young

Melissa Young is a Wellington based artist producing delicate figurative sculptures in bronze.

After completing an Industrial Design course at Wellington Polytechnic in 1989, Melissa started sculpting in 1993, actively selling her work in selected galleries throughout New Zealand from 1998. Her work is held in private collection in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, USA, England and France. 

Melissa describes her work as a social commentary on life, celebrating the lives of women past and present. Her pieces are named to express her personality and humour and give an insight to her world. 

In 2002, Melissa's sculpture 'Experience is the Mother of Knowledge' was placed first equal in the Pacific Art Awards. Melissa has since been a finalist in multiple awards and involved in multiple exhibitions.
