Melody Croft

Melody Croft paints narrative work that connects with human emotions. Her paintings focus on people and their stories to look inside of what appears to be seen. The common thread in her work is humanity and unlike the lens of a camera that objectively documents a moment in time and space, her lens subjectively observes and comments on the psychological, sociological, and emotional complexities of race, gender, age, and culture.
 
Croft’s current work focuses on allyship with the #Black Lives Matter movement. As a whole, the work creates an empathic narrative sparked from her many years as an elementary school teacher: forming emotional connections with young African American children.
 
Croft is a self-taught artist. She lives in Athens, Georgia, and commutes daily to her art studio in Jefferson, GA. To learn more about Melody or to contact her, please visit her website at melodycroft.com.
