I am a mixed media artist with a focus in drawing and painting medium. I am inspired by nature, abstraction, and my own sensitive sometimes unbearable tumultuous emotions. Some of my earliest childhood memories include; me being mad and frustrated at the world, running off into the woods to climb up trees, and stare at the clouds…..not much has changed over the years.
My name is Mellissa Morris. I live and work on Cape Cod. I was born on Cape Cod along with my 6 brothers and sisters; we are all a little wild, rough around the edges, passionate people. I have a daughter who constantly delights and challenges me. I never really liked cats growing up but coincidentally I ended up with my two babies, Nido and Leo, and they are my most favorite studio helpers/ best furry friends.
I have a Masters Degree in Fine Arts Painting and Drawing from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I do consider myself a life time learner/student and I am always taking new classes and learning new things.. I recently became certified in Somatic Movement therapies, Meditation, Yoga, Reiki, and I love to play and write songs on my Ukulele and Guitar.
Currently, I have a working studio at 46 Pearl Street at the HyArts Campus. I teach drawing, painting, and mixed media courses with a bent towards expression and abstraction at the Cape Cod Art Center, Falmouth Art Center, and The Cotuit Center for the Arts. I also hold my own Energy and Creative art workshops offered Nation wide through A creator platform called PATREON.COM/MELLISSAMORRIS.
