Describe you and your work

Melissa Loney is an interdisciplinary, project-based artist from Omaha, NE (she/they, 1998) whose work questions domestic sites' imprint on intergenerational memory. Her interest in femme labor practices references her maternal grandmother's cake-baking business in an often-flooded basement in rural Iowa. This business enabled her grandmother to subvert financial abuse and secure an independent income. As a disabled artist, she explores digital fabrications' ability to empower differently abled bodies.

She received her BA in Studio Art from Hastings College in 2020 and is currently pursuing her MFA in Sculpture X from the University of Arkansas.
