Melissa is so talented and a joy to work with. My gift was so much more personal and really a reflection of my Husbands grand dad. Thank you!!

Melissa did a photo of my nephews for my mother for mother's day. She rearranged the hand placement of the 2 year old, since he can be difficult when holding still. The oil painting looks amazing (and better) when compared to the picture she used to paint from. So very pleased with her talents…will definitely use her again!
