Melissa Contis' Profile
I have grown up around art. Both my parents are artists and have been my greatest teachers. I appreciate all forms of art, mediums and especially cultural history. Although my mother has a degree in painting and design, her passion became weaving. Her color and design sense came together beautifully in her exquisite woven products. My father followed his passion with a BFA and MFA in painting and had taught as a professor of art for over 35 years at Juniata college in Huntingdon, PA. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by the harmony of colors and design and take on the raw talent from my greatest teachers, my parents.
I have graduated with an Associates of Art degree and been in the graphic design field for 20 years. As a wife and a mother of two young boys, I am working towards an art education degree to continue the fine art atmosphere that helps to feed my soul…
