Melissa Sims is a fine artist currently living in Atlanta, Georgia. Her pop-style paintings are brightly colored collage style images painted in layers on wood, using oil and acrylic, then topped off with a shiny thick resin finish.
Melissa received degrees both in photography and art history, and briefly worked in a painting “factory” where she painted hundreds of paintings a year. It was there that she learned many painting techniques from her artist coworkers. She combines this knowledge with her photography, imagination, and sense of humor to create what you see today. Although her subject matter may change slightly due to changes in her life , the spirit of her paintings remains the same: “life is too short and uncertain… Smile.”
