Mellie grew up in Colorado amidst some of the of most breath-taking scenery and wild history in the country. It was under the massive and colorful Colorado sky that she grew up with a sense of beauty and power from nature, family, strong people, and strong surroundings..
A self-taught artist, Mellie still lives in Colorado, and still hunts for inspiration and beauty around every leaf and rock. From the Rocky Mountains to the plains, to her favorite "hideouts" on the Washington coast, she searches for beauty, history, and heritage...mining from them the ideas and inspiration for her paintings.
