Melissa Peters is an artist who specializes in acrylic, abstract paintings and oil, photo-like paintings.  Color and attention to detail are her main focuses, whatever the subject matter may be.  Nature, animals, and landscapes are her favorite themes.   She enjoys working on paintings that have a personal meaning to her, but she also enjoys painting special memories for her patrons.

  Melissa was born and raised in the northern panhandle of West Virginia.  At a young age, she experimented with watercolors and grew to love the feeling of holding a paintbrush.  She graduated cum laude from West Virginia University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and a minor in art history.  Now living in Bel Air, Maryland, she works at home in her studio.
