Melissa is a trained Holistic Counselor with a Visual Arts background, she has a friendly and vibrant personality and over five years experience hosting children’s parties and face painting at events and private functions throughout Australia.
Melissa now works part time as a Lifestyle and Leisure Officer presenting arts based creative programs for seniors in a role she thoroughly enjoys. Melissa regularly performs for seniors with her charismatic puppet characters in a way that is age appropriate and uplifting.
The Muppets have always been a fascination for Melissa and in 2013 she decided to fulfill a lifelong dream learning how to build puppets. This hobby expanded when she wrote and produced a puppet show that has been performed at numerous Libraries throughout Melbourne and went on to perform sold out shows at The recent Melbourne Festival of puppetry in 2017 and in 2015. She continues to brainstorm, build and perform new puppet characters and enjoys growing as a performer and puppet builder.
With her experience performing for small and large groups of various ages and passion for storytelling and puppetry she looks forward to hearing from you to discuss a show to suit your needs.
