Melody Bellefeuille-Frost explores themes of journeying and home on personal, intercultural, and theological levels. Referencing mapped and imagined places, her mixed media collages layer paper, paint, mud, tea, thread, canvas, and pocket-sized items gathered during travel. Her collages are a method of navigating transience and rootedness, becoming milestones or havens along the way. These new spaces invite viewers to contemplate their own journeys and the possibility of welcome in the world we share.
