Melissa Lockwood


We’re thrilled to have Melissa Lockwood, our first artist-in-residence.


Melissa Lockwood is an interdisciplinary artist, with an MFA from 
the University of Iowa. She works freely, moving from medium to medium, whether it is storytelling, performance, video, fashion design or poetry. Melissa deeply cares about the Earth’s ecosystems and Human rights. This is where her content emerges from. Her performance work is self reflective and integrates her experiences.


Melissa’s environmental work is expressed primarily through fashion design. She has focused on raising awareness about pollution caused by the mass disposal of fabrics in the garment manufacturing industry. Her writing is cathartic and deeply felt, a new type of sharing is emerging with what was a private activity.


We look forward to sharing aspects of Melissa’s experience at the Yellow House.
