Artist – Melissa V
"I think the most exciting part of design is the inspiration in which it comes from. In our busy modern world, it is so easy to overlook the beauty that naturally occurs all around us. A simple leaf, the reflection of lights on a puddle of water. The way a building can look completely different from night to day with the changing direction of the sun. That is my passion, giving people a new vision, enabling them to see the everyday with a new set of eyes."

"The more I draw and sketch, the more photographs I take, the more travel and research I do, the more inspired I feel to design. The spark of inspiration, the sorting of ideas and the ultimate excitement of creation, from conception to completion, this is the passion I live for as an artist. I feel blessed to have an outlet that allows me to feel alive and inspired everyday, to take the time and look at the world in a new way."
