Melissa Artemis Shemanna





Shemanna founded 'The Honeybee Temple Arts Foundation

In 2018, As an Arts pollinator and honey hive of dreaming our highest potential into being. Its main purpose is innovating multi-dimensional creativity into local and global communities.

Melissa's community portfolio includes exhibiting and curating festival arts production events, managing & curating arts festival galleries; Rainbow Serpent Evolve Gallery, EarthArtBeat Festival, Babylon Festival, Pollinate group arts extravaganzas, and sacred arts ceremonies. 

Melissa Artemis Shemanna’s paintings hold an evolutionary enquiry into cosmic intelligence, contrasting super worldly imagery of organic form, myth and ancient lore with futuristic tech and hyper-colour lenses with a visionary edge. Her main explorative mediums include oils & egg tempera traditional painting techniques, although she is also known to use high chroma acrylics, pure pigment, ochres and graphite. 

I give my deep respect and acknowledgement to the original people of this land and country, where I live, dream and raise my family today, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation. 

I recognise and respect all original peoples of this sacred land, past, present and future, whose natural law remains intact and who's innate sovereignty has never been ceded. Always was & always will be the original's land. And that I will live in accordance to this living law. 

Id like to acknowledge that all natural living people apon our habitat Earth. Our cooperation, respect and understanding is vital to create peace on this special planet.

- Melissa Shemanna, Honeybee Starfire medicine woman, daughter of the wild honey
