Mellissa is originally from the East Coast. She started working with leather four years ago. She is inspired by her husband’s grand mother, who created beautiful pieces of art for the family. Mellissa has not only made beautiful art pieces for her family but some of her pieces have even made their way to Europe and Africa.

Mellissa has had a love of fur from a young age, she remembers playing dress up with her grandmother’s fur coats. Now she is lucky enough to have a trapper in the family which enables her to have her pick of beautiful furs. She hopes to see you on your journey with the Boreal Shores Art Tour.
