Melisa Brown is a Charlotte-based Abstract Artist who evokes expressionism through striking, seamless, thought- provoking works.  The goal of her art is to render light in a world that can often times seem dim. Her paintings reflect the inner ability to let things flow and let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. The movement in each piece represents the unexpected twists and turns of life.  

Melisa graduated from South Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Minor in Chemistry.  As a S.T.E.M geek by day and an Artist by passion, Melisa is the bridge between the technical introvert and the expressive eccentric.  

Originally from Harleyville, South Carolina, Melisa was influenced by her elementary school art teacher. After a long hiatus from the craft, in 2017, she decided to rekindle her first love, Art. Since her emergence, Melisa is featured in Pride Magazine NC-Business Edition (May 2020), Voyage ATL (September 2020), and Mahyue Magazine (March 2020).  Additional art appearances include SouthEnd Arts Juried Exhibition, West Elm Pop-Up, and Hygge Coworking (West)- Mural Installation. She is easily "one to watch" in the community of artists on the rise in Charlotte, NC.
