Education

Melissa Left high school two years early to attend a special college for mutual smarty pants, Simon’s Rock of bard college She graduated in 1991 with a BA in liberal Arts (They didn’t have a Fine Arts degree). She graduated Cum laude and was thrilled to finally have a degree in her hand, as of that point she was technically a high school dropout, even though she dropped out to go to college.

Born/ Lives

Melissa was born in the mist of fire and brimstone, well almost. She was born on Trinidad in The Caribbean, her teenage mother fled from the neighboring island of Barbados seeking refuge from her well off parents that were none too pleased. The plan was to adopt the child out. The American couple named the child Melissa (a very un-Caribbean name) and were on their way to take the child. Apparently the papers were lost or misplaced the mother changed her mind and left with her child but kept the name.

Melissa has painted all her life after college she make a few lukewarm attempts in the New York Market (her local market) and then the Artist slept still dreaming of paintings, still making painting in her mind, she slept life passing by. Then she saw a goddess, all in black, grinning glorious, teeth borne owning the world. Why does everything sometimes change in one moment. Who knows? She woke up. This goddess was one of her own kind and woke her up and she hasn’t stopped since.
