Melissa SmithMelissa Smith primarily works with print, utilising traditional and new technologies. Her work references aspects of the landscape and in particular the shifts in the landscape that have occurred as a consequence of climatic changes, questioning its future balance.

In this Melissa's 20th year of exhibiting, her forum presentation will reflect on the journey her work has taken over this period of time and the part serendipity, various influences and connections and the art of juggling have played in the subsequent creative outcomes.

Melissa currently lives and works in Launceston, balancing her roles with Arts Tasmania as a Roving Curator and Program Officer for Public Art, with her arts practice. She has exhibited widely and her work is represented in corporate, tertiary, college and private collections in Australia and overseas including the National Gallery of Australia and Regional Galleries in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
