Melissa Young

Ever since I can remember, I have loved making and creating things. As a young kid there was always a project on the go (I am not sure how many were completed), but my creativity was always encouraged by my mum.

I live on the south coast of New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington, with my family – husband, child and adopted cat Charlie.

Ever since I can remember, I have loved making and creating things. As a young kid there was always a project on the go (I am not sure how many were completed), but my creativity was always encouraged by my mum.

I started sculpting in 1993 and since 2008 my themes have revolved around being a working parent. Storylines and ideas are constantly linked with my world: home, work, parenting and personal life. I often describe my work as a social commentary on (my) life. I produce delicate but visually strong figures in bronze which are often balanced in impossible positions. It’s a parallel to my life where I am continually striving to find the right work/home life balance.
