About the Artist

Melissa Gay
Member Since October 2013

Projects: I have crowdfunded and produced two art books-- Finding My Familiar (wildlife drawings on toned paper) and Earth and Water (sumi-e and other ink art), and I' m currently working on a third called I Dream of Space. Described by Toni Weisskopf as " romantic spaceships," my sci-fi paintings are fantastical and expressionistic, as if I were an ancient astronomer seeing the scenes in dreams. I create them by building up textures and illuminating the happy accidents I find within. I like to push the boundaries between narrative decision and randomness-- it' s how I make sense of art, and of life! (As to whether there is also a secret fantasy art book in the works, I have no comment except life is short and I' ve got a lot of art in me to put out into the world!)
