I’m a dreamy sort of a girl, generally walking around with images swirling around in my head.  I’m drawn to architecture, be it a beautiful old building in Chicago or a beautiful old tree in the woods. Mostly I want to communicate the beauty I find in the natural world.  I believe that nature and people need each other.  My paintings are meant to lure you out there, get you to fall in love with nature, and learn what you can do to help protect it.  I dream of a world where people and nature both thrive.

  1. Recently, Melanie and I watched the first part of the original Disney movie Fantasia. I was reminded by the colors of some of your paintings. It was a pleasant reminder.

  2. Hi Melissa, thank you for visiting my blog and the follow. That made me discover your blog and your beautiful art. I love the fairy tale atmosphere and color palet you use. I am all ready in love with nature but I look forward to see more your work and read more of your stories! warm greetings from Ohio, Johanna

  3. Hi Melissa. I love your reasons for creating art, hoping to share the beauty of nature and inspire people to protect her. That was my original reason to do photography. Thanks for following my blog.
    blessings, Brad

  4. Hi Melissa, I have only delved into your wonderful world of light and colour and delicate detail but a short way, and what I have seen and experienced thus far is trully magical and beautiful. I will look forward to following you and your inspiring art, and journeying deeper into your magnificent world. Pete.

    1. Hi Pete, Thank you for your encouraging words 🙂
      I am so delighted to have found your blog, and am looking forward to following along on your journey as well. The minute I saw your work I knew I’d found a kindred spirit.
