Mel Beach is a San Jose, CA based quilt artist, teacher and lecturer, who breaks away from tradition by adding her own modern, beautifully textured and colorful twists.  She loves stretching her creativity through her completion of 60+ quilt challenges at the local and international level.  Her quilt challenge entries draw upon her inquisitive nature of asking "What If?" and “Why Not?”, working in a series, comedy improv studies along with her love of nature, photography and sketching.  

Many of her challenge quilts have been exhibited locally, juried into national quilt shows and traveling exhibits, published in books/magazines, earned awards/ribbons and selected as Finalists.    

She is an Aurifil Artisan and a Featured Artist on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims (episode 2112).
