“Art and science represent the difference between “being” and “doing”; Art's raison d'être is to evoke an emotion. Science seeks to solve problems by advancing knowledge.”  - Leonard Shlain

Challenging the rules of what is and exploring the what ifs, Melanie Olson draws on 20 years of scientific research in labs across Canada and challenges the use of materials while researching emotion evoking subject matter.

Melanie is a multi-disciplinary artist residing in Vancouver, BC. Melanie draws inspiration from personal experiences and the landscapes around her. In addition, Melanie also gets excited by all the inspiring artist around the world sharing their work and creative processes.
