Imagination has always been a driving force throughout Melissa's life. She once imagined herself to be a future Forensic Psychologist! But after a year long internship, she realized the job was not nearly as glamorous (or creepy) as it sounds.
She finally found a way to combine her whimsical, and often dark imagination, with her love for drawing and received an MFA in Visual Development from the Academy of Art University in 2009. Now she uses her greatest strength to help bring ideas to life as a Visual Storyteller through concept art and illustration.
Melissa resides in Union City, CA with her husband, 2 kids, 2 cats, and one crazy little dog.
