Melina is an artist, a dedicated musician and lyricist, a skilled seamstress, a spoken word performer, curator and playful image- and object-maker.  She has exhibited and performed all over the country and traveled the world playing in her bands Joan of Arc and Aitis Band.  She is as much an inventor as an artist, and as much a librarian as a songwriter. This is an artist who incorporates so many interchanging and overlapping dimensions that it’s as if she’s created her very own genre.  

Regards, Chicago
