Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 26. 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 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! ;)

So that happened + MAS

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 5, 2015, 9:59 AM
Remember when I said I was gonna be around dA more? Yeah, that obviously wasn't true since I've missed yet ANOTHER entire month of being round these parts of the interwebz :XD: I've been a tad busy this summer, plus I decided to get a k-12 teaching certificate (bleh, moar school). So I'll be starting on that in a couple weeks when the fall semester begins. In the mean time I've been teaching with my college's continuing studies program and it's been going pretty well. I've got another class lined up in two weeks time and a few more coming this fall, so I'm pumped for that (and of course I'm happy for the monies, as yours truly still doesn't have steady employment :XD:

A week ago I was visited by Midwest Artist Studios Project to discuss my work, talk about how I make it, and of course get some fun pics :D I'll be working with them over the course of the 2015/2016 school year to develop an art curriculum for high school students around the midwest. 

LOOK AT MY FAYSE, I'm pretending like I know some things and that I am qualified to teach them to other people :XD:. Also, the Kingdom Hearts artwork in the background was made by none other than TheCreativeJenn (aka Jenniferraye, aka Jenn) , the schweet brain print? Made by scenefag (aka Baylen, aka Bee)
