Hi! My name is Melissa and I love to draw! I paint as well but drawing is at the heart of it all for me. It all started when I was young; I’d draw on the white wash walls of my bedroom in Palm Beach. Though 30 years have passed since then, the act of mark-making still continues to intrigue me.

Portraits are my favorite subject matter but I also enjoy sketching buildings, people in spaces, animals, and landscapes as well. I’m all about representational art (more realistic art) and I feel there’s nothing more special than sharing the joy of creativity with others.
