Melissa Blue Fine Art

Artist directory :: Melissa Blue Fine Art

When I saw these lovely ducks swimming at Chain of Lakes State Park, I was struck by the way cotton tree fluff dotting the water seemed to echo the markings on the bird's breast and I really wanted to capture that.

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
