Melissa is a quiet, studious and fiercely determined artist, who has grown into a fine naturalist painter. As an animal lover, she imbues her subjects with personality, making even the fiercest of creatures accessible and irresistible. Whether small or large scale, most of Melissa’s pieces are painted with the smallest of brushes, with care given to every corner of the canvas. As well as natural species, Melissa is fond of Disney, as well as characters from favorite T.V. shows such as Little House on the Prairie.
