It is common to find Melissa, the artist behind PaintInks by Melt, among the shelves of the kids sections in libraries and bookstores. Constantly attracted to the beautiful illustrations found in picture books, she has spent most of her life accumulating books more for their artwork than for the stories. With such a strong influence from children’s literature, it is not surprising that many of the illustrations from this self-taught artist appear to be pages from children’s books.

Whimsical and quirky are words often used to describe her artwork. Pet dinosaurs, minature polka-dotted elephants and fat cats are some of creatures that often show up in her paintings. She specialises in doing commissioned illustrations of families and pets. Recently, she has also started doing minature paintings. Her mission is to bring cheer, not just to those who view her artwork, but also to society by channeling the profits towards various human and animal welfare organizations.
