About Mel

About Mel
Mel Kolstad is an artist, speaker, instructor, curator and arts advocate who makes her home in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Her love of vintage ephemera is what first led her to creating art; since then she's discovered the joys of painting abstracts, creating tiny watercolor landscapes, printmaking, and encaustic work, as well as rediscovering her love of fiber art. She is also delighted to be a Certified Papermaker for Arnold Grummer, Inc., and the Program Chair of Wisconsin Visual Artists - Northeast Chapter.

Mel's work can be seen in displays around Wisconsin in various exhibits; Gallery & Frame Shop, Fond du Lac, WI; Ubuntu Art Space, Fond du Lac, WI; and on her website, melkolstad.com.
