Hi, I'm Marissa Shell. Welcome to my profile!
Currently I am working on pieces which are made from small, overlooked items that I scour my surroundings for. I construct and transform them into large tapestries or fabrics. Items that I am using are bottle caps, corks, dress hooks, and glass beads. These items suggest my day-to-day whereabouts to the viewer, and are a peek into my life.
Born and raised in Queens, NY. Currently works in Brooklyn, NY.
