Abstract Artist specializing in Fluid Art/Acrylic Pouring and Alcohols Inks
So, what does art and science have in common? This girl! My name is Melisa (Me-LEE-sa) and I am a local, self-taught artist who specializes in Abstract Paintings and Interior Wall Art. I like to think of myself as the bridge between the technical introvert and the expressive eccentric. I'm a Chemist by day and an Artist by passion. I was born and raised in a small town in the lowcountry of South Carolina but currently residing, creating and curating in the Fort Mill, SC and Charlotte, NC areas. Although I have no formal education or “training” in art, I discovered my gift as early as 8 years old. In 2017, I decided to professionally pursue my true passion and first love, Art.
ABOUT MY WORK
My style is modern and abstract. Color is my jam. I specialize in jewel tones, free flowing collisions, curated “cells”, and accents of gold/gold leafing. The movement in my paintings represent the unexpected twists and turns of life. The gold represents light in a world that can often times seem dim. My paintings reflect the inner ability to let things flow and let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy.
