Aloha, I am Melanie. I have been a painter, illustrator, designer and lover of beauty my whole life. All Pastels, Paintings and Drawings are the original ideas acquired through meditation, studying nature, intuition, love and participating in earth-spirit medicine ceremonies. In 2001 after receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts with emphasis in Graphic Design, I established Swan Designs. Since the completion of her undergraduate degree, I peruse in a career working as a freelance artist, illustrator, designer & artisan. In further pursuit of peace, I have continued my education for a MFA in Art Therapy & Dance & Movement Therapy which later evolved into a certification in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, several other Yoga teacher trainings & a deep passion for healing the body, mind & spirit. I experienced working with museums, universities, various interesting businesses, and also for prospective art lovers. Within the last 22 years I've accumulated thirteen awards of recognition internationally through juried exhibitions and portfolio reviews, including 1 gold & 3 silver key awards through The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. With 20 years or more experience in realistic Life Drawing Skills/Portraits, Watercolor, Oil and Acrylic Painting, Pastels, Airbrushing, Artisan Jewelry, Modern Art, Dance and Yoga Therapy, Traditional Graphic Design, Digital & Fine Art Photography, Gicleé printing, Creative Design, Website Design, Marketing & Advertising. I have also been in gallery exhibitions in Miami, New York City & Paris for my jewelry work & paintings! I have even had one of my photographs I took of my earrings projected on the side of a building in Times Square through the See.Me in 2012.
