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
| ||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.|
| ||Occasionally I have agreed to do a commission for someone, if our visions are in sympathy with each other. Here you can see some of those projects.|
BlogDriven to AbstractionI've been creating representational paintings of the natural world for many years now. It is what people who know my work have come to expect. Lately though, my soul has been crying out for a change.
