I'm obsessed with the idea of falling, just as I'm thrilled by all things that fly. In my show that was, until recently, up at Spacecraft, these were the themes that ran through my work. And now, once again, I return to them, as I think of the stories of Icarus and Daedalus.

I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
