Born and raised in the peaceful city of Boulder, Colorado with amazing mountain views, Melanie Steinway developed a passion for nature, music, and animals. She moved to the East Coast to attend the Rhode Island School of Design where she got her BFA in Illustration last year and discovered the art of pyrography. Using various types of wood, a woodburning tool, wood stain, and paint she creates unique images that incorporate the knots and the swirls of the wood, retaining its integrity. She currently lives in NYC where she makes art and music for her band Howl Moonshine Howl.

According to her bio on RAW:

My work is inspired by tattoo art, primitive art such as northwest native american art, and a synesthetic translation of the color and energy I feel in music. I have also recently begun woodburning musical instruments, mainly guitars, which feels like a perfect synthesis of my dual loves of art and music.

Melanie’s gorgeous guitar art got her a ticket to NAMM after she did some work for Fender. Check out more of her innovative wood workings on her website and Tumblr and listen to her music, which is just as beautiful as her art, on SoundCloud.
