Melanie is a visual artist, who has been painting large murals, faces and commissioned artwork across the Lowcountry for the last 18 years. She has created and taught supplemental arts curriculum in several elementary and middle schools East of the Cooper.
Although her love for art showed itself at an early age and led her to Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia, her work study job led her to a culinary degree at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. After which, she worked as a chef in NYC during the 90s.
Born in NH, Melanie has lived up and down the East Coast, and even a few years in Lagos, Nigeria. Now, she and her husband of 25 years, have settled here in the Charleston area, and love listening to their daughter study opera at Wingate University.
