Mel Kolstad is an artist, speaker, instructor and arts advocate who makes her home in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Her love of vintage ephemera is what first led her to creating art; since then she's discovered the joys of printmaking and encaustic work, as well as the wonders of what a sewing machine can do when combined with paper. She is also delighted to be a Certified Papermaker for Arnold Grummer, Inc., and the Chair of Wisconsin Visual Artists - Northeast Chapter.

Mel's work can be seen in displays around Northeastern Wisconsin and every third Friday for Fond du Lac's "Tour the Town" art walk; Gallery & Frame Shop, Fond du Lac, WI; and on her website,
