Melissa Blue Fine Art

Artist directory :: Melissa Blue Fine Art

In my former garden years had passed and things had changed. The maple, small when we moved in, was large now and lifted the bricks I'd laid to edge the garden. Only shade lovers thrived there, now. Recently, to my great joy, a bright yellow daffodil arrived and settled itself in. We've since moved, but I enjoy this glimpse of past glory.

The Daffodil

Horse and Garden

Although my primary focus is on the natural world, and seeking to highlight the unique beauty to be found where I live, I also love horses and gardens so once in awhile I will paint from these inspirations as well.


Melissa Blue Fine Art 
Melissa has devoted many years to honing her craft, capturing the beauty she finds in the natural world. Her work is informed by a degree in biology as well as many hours in the field, studying how plants and creatures form communities. She is particularly drawn to the connections she finds~plants to geology, insects to plants. "I always knew I was meant to be an artist, but when I started monitoring butterflies at Illinois Beach State Park, I knew I'd found my subject." ~Melissa
