Melissa Forman from Cleveland, Ohio, has been painting on commission since she was fourteen. By day she illustrates for commercial purposes, but by night she paints for pleasure. Her nocturnal work has been exhibited nationwide. Forman describes her process as a careful calibration of colors and elements with which to signal a particular sentiment or mood.
She gradated from Columbus College of Art and Design with a BFA and an ambition to represent figures isolated from their environments, so frozen and expressionless that they might serve as “a window into something deeper and far more human”.
