ABOUT THE ARTIST
My paintings offer a personal encounter with a wild creature. They see you. I challenge you to see not only their beauty, but also their intelligence, spirit and indispensability.
Melissa Gates began painting as a hobby in 2015. As she experimented, she discovered an innate ability to express her love of nature with precision and depth. She strives to create pieces that reflect close-up beauty with an impressionistic style.
