About Melissa Mendelson Art


My name is Melissa Mendelson, I am a young artist creating paintings, prints, and costumes. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kent State University in 2018 and am currently building my portfolio under my business Melissa Mendelson Art.

Why Patreon?

I love creating and making content to share with everyone, but without funding I can't justify dedicating myself to my artwork as much as I would like to. My normal content and work in progress photos will never be gated behind Patreon payment, but by donating you will get access to a lot of behind the scenes content! I wouldn't be able to create this content without the funding, so it is exclusive to supporters.

What will you see here?

I received a BFA in Painting and Printmaking, but I love creating fantasy, wildlife, and fanart illustrations in watercolor and linocut. Starting in 2017 I have started to delve deep into costume making as well, something that has interested me since a young age. I have found that I deeply enjoy creating highly detailed creature costumes, and I am beyond excited that I have become part of an amazing community of creative people through this.

A large part of my life also involves mushing - training, running, and racing Alaskan huskies. They have defined my life since I first took an interest in the sport over 10 years ago. You will see them in a huge percentage of my artwork, since I live and race with them!

Thank you!

Regardless of whether you are a patron or not, thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look! Keep creating!

Want to support me but can't financially? I am on these social media sites! Any and all support is appreciated, no matter how small!
