Artist's Profile

The Art of Melyssa A. Harmon...

Everett, Washington native Melyssa A. Harmon began painting in May, 2004 as a means of therapeutic recreation, something that later became her passion and career working with seniors. Prior to healthcare, Melyssa was a music journalist and record promoter in Los Angeles, California. Her use of swirls, texture and creative color choices fill each piece with playful emotion to produce one-of-a-kind pieces that touch art enthusiasts internationally. Melyssa uses acrylic paint with other textured mediums on both linen paper and stretched canvas, merging pop art and organic abstract in a unique style all her own.

Begining with her first juried show at the Port of Everett Fresh Paint Art Festival in August 2005, Melyssa has enjoyed both national and international success. After completing a four-month showcase in September 2006 at Seattle, Washington café LC's Kitchen, owners Paula and Pauline touted Melyssa as 'the most successful artist LCs has had,' selling a number of pieces to patron's of this Seattle foodie favorite. In June 2007 Melyssa was asked to contribute a large nautical-themed piece for Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center in Snohomish County. She has also contributed pieces to benefit Pro-Choice Washington / NARAL Liberty Ball Auction, Bethany of The Northwest Foundation, United Way, Terwilliger Plaza Assisted Living and other humanitarian and equal rights organizations.

When not painting, Melyssa can be found teaching art, playing piano and entertaining seniors at Providence Elderplance Laurelhurst in Portland, Oregon, where she resides with her partner of the same name, puppy Emma and two spoiled cats.
