"EVERY ARTIST HAS A PERSONAL
PHILOSOPHY THAT GUIDES HER WORK"


 
Melissa loves and creates art that stimulates thought and opens up a conversation.

A title starts the conversation, allowing viewers to layer their own

memories and meanings onto the paintings.

Her inspiration is drawn from the Modern Art Philosophy which emphasizes

simplicity, intensity, and direct expression, and credits the artist/art philosopher,

Robert Motherwell as having had the greatest influence on her work. 

”I awaken before dawn each morning, my head swirling with possibilities.

I watch the day emerge as the sun rises outside my studio, then follow the muse.

The process of visually diving into each image through its multiple layers of rich texture

and depth is the sort of magic that compels me to come back to creating, day after day.

My work has evolved over the years, but the drive to create,

interpret, and share has never failed me.”  – Melissa Erlenbach
