Original Art
Resin on wood panel
33x47.5x2
This modern, ocean-inspired painting is layered with white, Caribbean blue, and silver metallic epoxy pastes along with turquoise and white acrylic inks. Turquoise and Aruba blue mica powders were used to create soft washes of translucent waves. Hints of sparkle were added to the white foamy waves near the shore to add a splash of mist. A cool color palette was used to create this serene seascape. Although Melissa strives for a flawless resin finish, natural imperfections can occur and are considered part of the art process.

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. Her new partnership with a Scandinavian design company, Feathr, captures her ocean seascapes on wallpaper murals. Melissa is a current member of the Orange County Fine Arts Association and the Dana Point Fine Art Association.
