Meet Melissa

I am a contemporary artist working with abstract watercolor, mixed media, illustration and photography.  My work is based on form and texture found in nature.  I have been creative all my life, but took a deep dive into the art world in 2020 in pursuit of becoming an artist full-time.  I enjoy working with all kinds of art supplies and art techniques and I am always learning and experimenting with new ideas.  My portfolio is diverse, but each body of work inspires the other and allows me to grow.   Having been a biologist and an educator over the years, I have a deep desire to gain knowledge and pass that onto others.  My dream is to create artwork, create content, and create connection with other creatives so that we can work together in living an intentional life of joy and gratitude.
