Team of Artists
We can't wait to create great things for you!
While Melinda is the main creative consultant and the artist for most projects, it's always good to have some back-up! Like when more than one artist is needed on-site, Melinda is already booked, or you'd just prefer a different style.
While not everyone has a background in fine or performing arts, we are all proficient in the art of listening, synthesizing, and visually supporting you.
