E. Melinda Morrison          back to gallery artists

Melinda picked up her first paintbrush at the age of fourteen studying under local a landscape artist in Tyler, Texas, her hometown. But, it was not until college that she found her first love of drawing, painting and sculpting the human figure.

Melinda attended University of Texas at Tyler graduating with a B.A. in Fine Arts.  Her passion for pursuing her fine art took a backseat to the world of advertising, spending 16 years in Dallas and Kansas City markets working as a designer and art director.  While owning her own advertising/public relations agency for six years, she was recognized for her print design for publications and annual reports in national competitions.

After advertising, Melinda moved into corporate recruiting management for technology firms but found her need for creativity growing.  In 1999, with the discovery of the Art Student League of Denver, she took a class with Denver artist, Rob Gratiot.  "When I started painting again after some 20 years, I was taking Rob's class.  One night,  Rob came over and looked at one of my paintings.  He looked back at me quizzically and asked if I had painted before.  Telling him ‘yes, years ago,’ he pointed to a spot in my work and said ‘that is brilliant brushwork.’  I told him, it could not be too brilliant cause I had no idea how it got there!  But that was just enough to peak my curiosity as to whether I could become a better artist.”

Over the next few years as Melinda continued to study at the League, her passion for painting ignited and her desire to paint full-time grew.  Deciding it was time to jump off the cliff, in 2003, Melinda embarked on the journey of a professional art career.  Since that decision, she showed in major regional and local shows in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado gaining recognition for her figurative and landscape paintings.

Today, Melinda continues her studies with mentors and accomplished Colorado artists, Kim English and Kevin Weckbach.

She is represented by K.D. Moore Gallery, Evergreen, Co; Frame Image, Denver, CO and Alexandra Stevens Gallery, Sante Fe, NM.
