Currently, she freelances as an award-winning graphic designer and daily explores the joys of the creative process in her home studio in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Themes of faith, inspiration, and hope run deep through Melody’s artwork…making her a natural fit for painting live during worship settings for conferences, festivals, concerts, and church services. Her spontaneous visual expression on canvas infuses the worship atmosphere with adoration, devotion and praise…encouraging other worshippers to engage God in real and transforming ways.
She’s painted for worship events featuring music artists: Darrell Evans, Sean Feucht, Rick Pino, Rita Springer, United Pursuit Band, BJ & Lisa Sullivan, and Gwen Smith; for local church services at: Carmel Baptist Church, Freedom Church Gastonia, Lake Forest, Crossroads, The Gathering, Watershed, Renovatus, Life Fellowship, Freedom House, Ardent Faith, and River’s Edge; and for events with: CharlotteOne, Dust, Unite Charlotte, The Billy Graham Evangelical Association’s “Defining Moments” video shoot, Kannapolis First Baptist’s “Walking Out Your Looking Up” Women’s Conference with Haven Parrott, Union Road’s Youth Explosion, The Burn Metrolina and 24-7 Prayer.
Her artwork has been featured in a variety of venues around the Charlotte area, including: Green Rice Gallery, The Underground Gallery, Davidson’s Art On The Green, CPCC’s Sensoria, Julia’s Coffee, The Well Coffeehouse & Church, Journey Church, Renovatus Church, Watershed’s Pop Up Arts Market, NoDa’s All Arts Market, Plaza Midwood’s Fall Crawl and Statesville’s Gallery Crawl, as well as Living Word Community Church in Red Lion, PA.
