Professor Elizabeth Mellott
Elizabeth Mellott studied at Texas Women's University and the University of North Texas, both in Denton. She holds a M.F.A. in photography with studies in book arts. Currently, she is a professor of photography at Collin College in Plano, Texas, teaching traditional and alternative photography.
As an artist, Mellott crosses boundaries constantly. The majority of her work is alternative and/or sculptural, with an emphasis on photography. The art is emotionally charged, addressing personal concerns and social issues around specific moments. The works recreate scenes with photography and other processes, capturing a personal and constructed view of the world that also engages with issues of common concern.
For Mellott, art is a means of expression and documentation, a way to communicate with others about pressing issues of contemporary life.Artist Work
