Melissa’s creative process is less of a process and more of a whirlwind for this busy mama of two!
“When an idea lights or inspiration hits, that is when the creating happens (often between school drop off and soccer practices!). I love when time allows for me to fall deeply into the process and transform a thought into a tangible piece of art. In between these bursts I am almost always tinkering. My studio is in my home and I am not above adding a pop of color to a painting that’s already hanging on the wall or a collage that just needs one last piece to be perfect.”
