Ashland, Oregon

Melissa has been creating mixed media artwork for over 15 years. Most of her work is done on commission for the hospitality industry, cruise lines, corporate offices, healthcare, restaurants and private collectors. She works with her clients for direction to convey in a visual sense the feeling, tone, event, locale or time frame that the client is looking for. For corporate clientele she will often use promotional materials supplied by the company and incorporate site specific materials to tell the story of where they are and what they do. She is well known for creating personal Family Legacy Gifts where she will work with a client who needs something unusual for an anniversary, special event, birthday, special interest, family tree, a pet. Melissa can use the client’s photographs and memorabilia along with materials that she collects to create a personalized work of art that will become a keepsake for years to come.

“The round hubcap symbolizes the globe which inspired the travel theme. This project is near and dear to my heart as much of my world involves using found objects or re-cycling material to create artwork. “Melissa Markell
