“I have been creating as long as I can remember; it is just something I have to do …..I am inspired by color and the emotions evoked through combinations of color and application.” Melissa’s technique involves layering a multitude of colors and layers in both figurative and contemporary realms. Color, Composition, application of paint and drama dominate Melissa’s artistic expression. Melissa’s work has been displayed at various galleries and private collections in the United States and the United Kingdom which include New York, London, Paris, Venice, and Torino Italy. In 2013, she established MDH Creative Enterprises, a working studio where artists various ages and of all skill level receive instruction fine-tuning their techniques. Melissa continues working on paintings in both representational and contemporary styles.
