Melanie Grein

Denver, CO

I paint as a form of expression and self discovery. Each mixed media work is a story within itself representing a journey, memory or a mood. No matter what I’m painting, it’s always relationships. Relationships of space, line, color and texture. How everything interacts together.

I get lost in the act of painting. The process is so engaging.

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I work in multiples so each piece informs the next. Adding and eliminating, shifting and restructuring elements until the moment a solution reveals itself.
I use contrasting layers to activate the surface and reveal passages of time and history. The process is completely engaging, exhilarating, frustrating and rewarding."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I love it when I can incorporate an occasional paw print into the piece and have it become a happy surprise element. Puppies!"
