"My Love For The Water Is Expressed In My Ocean Inspired Paintings"
International resin artist... Growing up between two worlds, she was shaped by country living in the South, and sunny days spent at the beach in Southern California. The ocean captivated her heart, inspiring the name 'fiery for deep blue.' Her love of the water is expressed in her ocean-inspired resin paintings on wood panels. It is the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air” that guides Melissa’s artistic expression. Although resin seascapes make up a large portion of the work she does, she also loves to work with other mediums such as watercolor, oil, and acrylic. Creating contemporary pieces with the addition of glitter, metallic, and a bold color palette provides a nice contrast to her serene pieces. Although innately artistic, Melissa received formal training at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree. Melissa’s work was featured in SHOUTOUT LA September 2020: Local Stories, the July 2019 issue of VoyageLA Magazine, Orange County’s Hidden Gems: Local Creatives You Should Know Series, Arkansas Life Magazine 2016: Artist Spotlight, and was featured in the Special 48th Anniversary edition of Southwest Art Magazine May 2019. She is working with New York based interior design company, KAVKA Designs, to bring her resin art to life on rugs, textiles, and home decor for retailers such as Saks off 5th, Wayfair, Overstock, Elle Decor, and other major retailers. Her new partnership with Scandinavian design company, Feathr, captures her ocean seascapes on wallpaper murals. Melissa is a current member of the Laguna Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach, CA.
