Our Issue Two artist, Los Angeles based Melissa Manfull, has some amazing new work up on her website and we wanted to share it. We were so happy to include a few of her meticulous, architectural drawings in our magazine over a year ago, and it seems like her work is only getting better.

Where are you from originally? Does your nationality play a role in your work?
I have lived in Mexico for a great part of my life, but living abroad for 6 years influenced my work. Photography was a way for me to find a place to belong.
Do you have a day-job outside of your art practice? If so, what is?
I am lucky enough to have a job that I adore as a freelance photo-retoucher. Doing this allows me to wake up late and stay in my pajamas, and I hope to keep doing this for as long as I can :)
