who am I?

Multifaceted Creative Professional

MelVee X is a multidisciplinary artist and creative professional based in Mohkinstsis (Calgary AB, Canada). Her primary means of expression are spoken word poetry, burlesque performance and photography – what she dubs ‘The MelVee Trifecta.’

MelVee has been a practicing professional artist for almost six years and has been a featured artist at numerous shows and venues and has shared her work locally and nationally. It is her life’s vision to empower marginalized people to tell our own stories from our perspectives.

Ms. X is proudly Black and incorporates her appreciation for Caribbean, African and Black American cultures into her work. The struggle is real, unapologetic and has never looked so damn good.
