Melissa Hartley

Melissa Hartley is a self taught artist. She studied graphic design and in 2010 she decided to pick up the paint brush again and pursue her love of painting.
She’s inspired by many things, but her paintings predominately draw on the sublime beauty of nature, old traditional craftsmanship, especially botanical illustrations of the past, and fashion photography.
Melissa desires to create images of beauty and mystery that allow the viewer to find their own personal significance in them, traversing emotions that reside deep within our own subconscious.
