This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A diverse artist, Melissa Zink combined several mediums in her dimensional works including painting, sculpture, computer generated imagery, and materials such as old book bindings, fabric, weathered wood, etc.  Books were a special passion, not only in physical form but in the process of reading they induce.  She included individual pages that evoke feelings.

Her collected work of ceramic sculpture has been described as a "museum of the mind, filled with imagery of archaeology, anthropology, art, religions, dreams, animals, plants, books, etc.  Some of her pieces are complete sets with props, miniature sets, and actors; some evoke the England of Virginia Woolf and Edith Sitwell, and others the work of Pieter Bruegel and late-Renaissance Flanders.

The imaginary and representations of real characters all seem to live in her mind and have been a part of her life through various experiences.

In the summer, 2000, the work of Melissa Zink, representing New Mexico, was exhibited at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington DC, having been chosen as part of that museum's program "From the States."

Melissa Zink died July 17, 2009.
