Melanie is an American artist born and raised in Plymouth, Michigan.
She has been drawing since she was a little girl. Back then, her favorite canvas was pavement and go-to tool was sidewalk chalk. Nowadays, Melanie works digitally but also enjoys creating artwork with watercolor, markers, colored pencils, and acrylic paint. Oh, and sometimes a pinch of glitter too! Melanie is a 2013 graduate of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan where she earned a BFA in Illustration before relocating to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career as an illustrator and designer. Melanie is most interested in work that has a positive impact on children - including animation, games, publications, and products. She enjoys cooking, sci fi movies, and exploring LA with her friends. When she isn’t illustrating, you might find her hunting for shells and unique rocks on the beach! Melanie is also very fond of animals, especially her little black cat, Pepper.
