Here's a little insight into the creative process and the inspiration behind the work of 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 is a self-taught artist. She lives in Athens, Georgia, and commutes daily to her art studio in Jefferson, GA.
"My work aims to create an empathic narrative, sparked from my many years as an elementary school teacher."
