Get to Know

My name is Melissa (a.k.a. Missy) and I am a wife to my darling hubby Jason and a new mother to my beautiful little angel Elizabeth (we like to call her Betsy).

When I first became a mother and I began my maternity leave, I knew immediately that I did not want to go back to work full time. I wanted to be a full time mom AND try to get back to my first love - painting. Betsy inspired me to specialize with portraits of children after I had painted a portrait of her at only 9 weeks old.

I have a bachelor degree in Art and I have been painting for 20 + years. It is my true passion.

Please let me know if you would like to a custom portrait painted. All you need to do is send me a photo and I will recreate it into a original work of art.
