Melissa Searing's Profile
Hello! Welcome to The Mod Cottage. Come in, have a cup of tea and let me tell you a little about myself.
My name is Melissa and I've been making art for as long as I can remember. As a child it was my comfort and as an adult it is my joy. It seemed only natural for me to go to school for art, so that's what I did, earning a Bachelor's of Fine Art in 1996. My art degree has allowed me to work as a graphic artist and designer in almost every media type since then. I feel blessed to design for a living.
But ultimately, it's the fine arts that I love; the direct contact of brush to canvas, pencil to paper, my hands in soapy water as I wet-felt, bending wire, collecting materials for collage…so many art forms, so little time!
I derive much of my inspiration from mid-century…
