Walking the trail at Moraine Hills State Park last fall on a soft autumn afternoon I was stopped in my tracks by the lovely view of the lake nestled in the trees. 18x24" canvas with wide gallery-wrap edges, painted black, wired and ready to hang.
Discover the landscapes of the upper midwest, rich with subtle beauty in every season.
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
