I am an American artist, designer and realtor living and working in Asheville, North Carolina.  I try to show passion and a love for life in my work and primarily think of art as process and the capturing of our most poetic and deepest expressions.   I  primarily work in pencil, charcoal, and oil, but also utilize other mediums, wet or dry if it serves the final concept of the piece.  I often work from small studies, preliminary sketches and photos  to create my works but also love the immediacy of working from life. My most recent works are explorations into mixed media. My works are often influenced from poetry and the deep resonances that inexplicably reveal our deepest human emotions and feelings.   I have taught art in both private and public schools and museums, as well as my through my studio, Melissa Houston Art + Design.
