Biography


Melody, a native Atlantan, has been painting since she was a young girl.  She was inspired by her grandmother who provided  paints, brushes and canvas and set up her first still life on the kitchen table.
 
Living in northwest Georgia, she can be found painting or teaching in  her studio most days.  She has studied with several regional and/or international artists including Andrew Peters, Gregg Kreutz, Roberta Remy, Robert Johnson and Kim English and Amanda Lovett and Jill Banks.  At every level of understanding, she has a personal commitment to excellence-striving to be the best that she can be. Melody paints from life, setting up the still life or in plein air, painting a study of the landscape and then returning to the studio using the small painting as her guide to accurately capture the light.  Her paintings are noted for their light and color.  Professional Affiliations -Booth Art Guild - Cartersville, GA  2017 to present -Member RACA-Rome Area Council for the Arts  2016 - Present -Member Big Canoe Artist Group  2010 - 2015  -Member Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association  -Founding Member - SAAG    Southen Appalachian Artist Guild  -Member of Oil Painters of America  -A Founding Member of The Tumbleweeds, Cashiers, NC  -Member of The Art Group, Brasstown, NC   2005 - 2008  -Member: The Quinlan Fine Art Center, Gainesville, GA  -Member: The Bascom-Louise Fine Art Center, Highlands, NC  -Member: The Atlanta Artists Center, Atlanta, GA      2003-2006  -Member :  Mountain Arts Association, Hiwasee, GA   2004-2006Exhibitions and Juried Shows: -Booth Art Guild 7th Annual Juried Museum Show - May 2020- August 2020 -Booth Art Guild Winter/Spring Juried Show. 2020 -Cumming First United Methodist Church,  April 23 - May 7, 2017 -North Georgia Art Ramble,  Marble Hill, GA  -  December 2013 -Bowen Center for the Arts, Dawsonville, GA   -  The Big Canoe Artists - May 2012 0-Sheldon Gallery, Group Show, The Tumbleweeds, Naples, FL       April 2010 -High Country Art and Antiques, Blue Ridge, [...]
