Melanie works in multiple mediums including digital illustration, gouache and watercolor painting, and 3-dimensional work. She has always focused on traditional, hand-crafted creations, but digital illustration and animations are areas she has been exploring more and more these days. She loves the process of making and seeing her ideas come to life, whether it’s slow and steady or quick and complex.
Melanie has a degree in studio art from the University of California, Irvine. Art has played an essential role in her life since she and her family moved to the Bay Area from Rangoon, Burma at the age of seven and laid eyes on the colorful, classic characters of Disney, Winnie the Pooh, and the Sanrio family. Her art has since evolved into something that is uniquely her own.
