           a little bit about melissa

I have loved Art for as long as I can remember. As an artist, I strive to create beautiful, aesthetically pleasing images that offer a blend of simple and harmonious designs. My art background encompasses all types of mediums: ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking and design. My favorite design projects include logos and illustration, drawing initial concepts in my sketch book.

Following fine art school and years of working as a marketing professional in nationally recognized corporations, I returned to school to pursue my passion for art and design. I am living my dream of being a full time artist, focusing on my creativity and passion for all mediums of art.

As a profession, I work as a freelance graphic designer and in my spare time I work in my backyard pottery studio making functional, wheel-thrown pottery.  My inspiration for all my artwork comes from artisan craftsmen – working with their hands to make beautiful, useful objects.
