Melinda K. Schneider
Melinda is interested in aspects of reflection and what exists on the opposite side. She portrays this in self-portraits, through creating a looking-glass effect with water, shiny objects, night skies, or any other alternate dimension. While living in San Francisco, she worked as an artist and craftsperson painting murals, designing custom clothes for North Beach Leather, and created costumes for The Renaissance Faires within California. Melinda is an integral leader within WNY’s art community.
