Utilizing the complexity of applying/throwing a multitude of colors, each color dominating various parts of the whole until layer after layer the image is complete.

Each color or entity is then in itself a thing of beauty. Melissa currently owns and operates a Studio in Miller Place, New York and a satellite studio in Bellport, New York.
