Read our Inside the Studio interview with Melissa where we talked with her about her current body of work, her artistic process, and creative inspiration.
“I’ve always been drawn to strong lines and bright colors; the way that color and form merge into a connection with the artist and viewer. I believe we can all have eyes that are open and ears that are awake to the thrumming life around us. I see art as a way of expressing that resonance.”
