Melissa Fair Bio
Born in Oklahoma City in the early 80’s—the years of bad style and distasteful décor—Melissa knew right away that she wanted to design aesthetic and practical spaces. For Melissa, art is an illustration of life, a physical or emotional moment in time meant to be enjoyed by all. She attended the University of Central Oklahoma and received her bachelor’s degree in fine arts, majoring in Interior Design with a minor in Art. She worked for an architecture firm for many years and became NCIDQ certified in 2009. Although she had been painting since high school, it wasn’t until after the birth of her second child in 2011 that her desire to express herself with paints was re-kindled. Melissa paints with acrylic and oils while listening to all variations of music….loudly. She enjoys painting abstracts and recently found a love for portraits. Her goal as an artist is to transcend the mundane and express the emotions that capture life through paint. Whether it is a precious photo of someone special or a personalized interior wall mural, Melissa transforms it into a memorable artistic expression with her own special touch.
