Melanie's paintings “evoke a range of emotion from quiet contemplation to bubbling-over joy”
A Roundabout Path

Melanie was drawn to art from an early age but didn’t think painting could be a career but a hobby she would always love. She worked as a pharmaceutical rep, advertising account director and medical education moderator but never found a job she really loved. Melanie still felt called to art and took painting classes whenever she could until she found a job with a flexible schedule that allowed her to go back to school in painting. She now happily works full-time as an artist.

Happy Color

Melanie doesn’t like dreary and uses layers of exquisite color to create her dreamlike paintings.  Her colorful acrylic paintings have been said to “evoke a range of emotion from quiet contemplation to bubbling-over joy”.
