Melissa Porter

I consider myself a storyteller. I’m not your typical storyteller, using words to spin my tales, though you will find words and text within the work. I shy away from the written word after being teased unmercifully for being unable to spell due to my dyslexia. Instead, I create a visual narrative using found objects, vintage newsprint, beeswax, my own photography and symbols to tell the tales of my experiences and what I have witnessed.
