artist

Melanie Smith has been bringing creative ideas, paintings and finishes to homes and businesses for over 20 years.

Her love for art and creating beauty through painting, drawing and craft started as a child.  This love has continued and grown through the years and has evolved into a successful business and lifestyle.

Early training and experience came from jobs in screenprinting, design for Publix Supermarkets, art direction in advertising and later freelance design.  Years of freelance illustration and graphic design has helped perfect her style as a painter and muralist.

Artistic inspiration often comes from her love of native Florida and the beauty it offers. Her work can be seen in private residences and commercial propreties throughout Florida and in Atlanta, Myrtle Beach, Lake Tahoe, and Long Island, among others.

A deep desire to "give back" to the community has directed Melanie to share her talent with charitable organizations such as Special Olympics, Arts in Medicine and working with local schools. She is currently conducting "Creative Spirit" art enrichment classes with group and shelter homes throughout the area in association with Heartland for Children. 

 

There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people
