“Melissa does birds. She does birds unlike anything I have ever seen in my life. The canvases she uses are gigantic; the techniques she uses are modern (she combines spray paint and oil) and give her pieces a life-like character that is amazing. As if the birds were not a big enough statement and testament to her talent, she also crafts some of the frames they are showcased in. Toys and memorabilia from decades past are carefully assembled and lacquered to give a fresco feeling to the adorned frames. A home décor can be polished and well put together, but with the addition of one or two art pieces that make your heart skip a beat every time you look at them, a room really shines and becomes its own.”
