Melissa Moore is a painter living and working in Minnesota. She uses watercolors, acrylics, oils, and pastels. Her work may be considered autobiographical as she relates and responds to events and places in her life and daydreams. The use of bright, bold colors, abstract figures, and forms are symbolic. Her love of landscape and nature also comes through in her work. Melissa views art as emotion and strives to connect with her audience on an emotional level.
