Melissa Loney is an interdisciplinary, project-based artist from Omaha, NE (she/they, 1998) whose work centers femme labor, generational labor, and intersections between the two. Her interest in domestic laborers' relationship to capitalist control references her maternal grandmother's cake-baking business located in an often-flooded basement in rural Iowa. This business enabled her grandmother to subvert financial abuse and secure an independent income. 

She received her BA in Studio Art from Hastings College in 2020 and is currently pursuing her MFA in Sculpture X from the University of Arkansas.
