“ Being born and raised on an island in Northern Ontario, nature has become an integral part of my life. Because of this, childhood experiences and nature have coincided in my art making. In many cases metal is considered to be cold and mechanical. My challenge is to transfer this notion into warm, natural, sculptural beauty.”
Melanie LeBlanc completed a BFA at NSCAD, Halifax, before earning an Honours Degree from the Jewellery and Metals Program at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario.
