Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 27. I have an MFA in painting from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (2015). I have a BFA in painting and drawing (art history minor) from the University of Akron (2012). I'm working on getting certified to teach k-12 art in the state of Michigan! I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!
Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned!
