About Melissa

Melissa Carey is an established Contemporary Artist living on the East Coast of Australia and her work has been showcased internationally. She loves to create large sculptural installations, contributes installation art within the community through festivals, art exhibitions, collaborations and commissions, and has a passion for sharing her knowledge and creativity through teaching modern art & craft workshops for adults and kids since 2014. Given her background in Project Management, Quality Assurance and Training for 12 years, she is well equipped with the right skill set for managing art projects and events, and teaching creative classes. 

Melissa has a hands on approach to her artwork, and is involved in every stage of the process, from concept design, to fabrication and installation. Some highlights of Melissa’s art career are: completing an art residency and solo exhibition in Berlin; Creating an 8 metre art installation "Fortune Circle" for Chinese New Year; creating a large art installation for Air Nightclub in Perth; creating a Macrame Commission for Seafolly across multiple stores in Australia & USA; creating a 9 metre woven glowing Tunnel Installation at the Beams Festival; and participating in local community events and festivals.

Melissa has worked with leading brands such as Google, Ikea, Seafolly Swimwear, Salvation Army, Atlassian, Market City Shopping Centre, and more.

Melissa regularly volunteers within the community - she recently volunteered at the Sydney Children's Hospital teaching craft in the Mental Health Ward, and a past highlight was working in the art room at Princess Margaret Children’s Hospital in Perth, WA.

Melissa is passionate about the environment, recycling, healthy eating, taking reflective moments, smiles, watching the waves, philosophy, documentaries, giggles, wandering through forests, and passing on skills through her Creative Workshops.

She grew up in the neighbourhoods of Perth, Australia. She is an adventurer, travelling wherever the wind blows, and has lived abroad in London and Holland, and now resides on the east coast of Australia.
