MELONIE CAVALLARO is a fiber artist in South Philadelphia. Having studied fine art and art history in Italy, her fiber art combines her approach to classic oil painting and her passion for travel and world culture; combining global textures, form, and color into one medium. After the birth of her son in 2015, Melonie began transitioning from oil painting to textiles and quickly found this new tangible medium to be her most expressive. Melonie has exhibited her artwork in galleries throughout the US, Europe and the UK, such as: Gallery Café Art Bar, Florence, Italy; Eubie Blake National Jazz institute and Cultural Center, The Galleries at Moore; and Philadelphia's own Chris’s Jazz Cafe.
