Melissa is most notable for her hand made jewelry pieces that reflect a great sense of color, balance, and style. However, she has expanded her artistic repertoire to include drawing, watercolor painting, and comic book making. Melissa often draws inspiration from characters on TV and movies including Power Puff Girls, The Incredibles, and Charli Brown. She uses an illustrative style that depicts character in often amusing situations with speech bubbles reminiscent of the art of Lichtenstein. In the studio she is often found intently working, focused on her artwork. Although she is quiet, her artwork speaks volumes with its use of color, humor, and illustrative style.
