Born and raised on a farm in Leesburg, Indiana and then living in North Carolina for several years, Melodie moved her studio from Worthington, Ohio to Indiana and now back to Ohio. She became a part of the arts community at an early age; teaching classes, painting murals, supporting philanthropic efforts and entering her work in galleries and shows across the country.
Melodie studied oil painting and art history at Grace College in Indiana. Pieces from her work can be found in private collections from North Carolina to California. Inspired in the company of creative friends – she is always learning and loves to experiment with new mediums. “The process of art intrigues me – delving inside and bringing something to the surface that connects to another’s soul. This discovery continues to move me as I approach a blank canvas.”
