Colorado native, Melissa Leigh a.k.a. Sweet Melis, is an artist who is truly living her dream of a whirlwind life of constant creating. Bringing art into this world has been her true passion and life long goal. Ever since graduating from Colorado State in 2009 with a degree in Graphic Design, she has continuously been putting out a wide array of artwork. Paintings, printmaking, posters for concerts and music festivals, as well as album covers are all avenues she has explored with her work, while she also travels regularly to live paint for bands at various venues and major music festivals around the country.
Sweet Melis made two posters for Summer 2012, one for Deer Creek and Alpine Valley. Each measures 12″ x 18″ in a limited edition of 100 and printed on heavyweight card stock, created using intaglio printmaking, watercolor and fabric. Each print costs $20 plus $5 for shipping.
“I am passionately living a dream of constant creation. I want my art to reflect the beauty of the moment which hopefully in turn shows the importance of living in the present… On this journey I aim to make this world a more beautiful place than it already is.” Sweet Melis – Check out her Website – Facebook – and Twitter
