My name is Melissa—and I live and create in Troy, NY. I’m an artist, designer and thing-maker.

I wish I rode my scooter more often; I get sad when I sleep through the Saturday-morning farmers’ market; and I smile when it rains.

I’ve always loved paper and books. As a kid, giant sheets of paper were my go-to entertainment device. And I’ll eternally be an avid reader. I grew up in Pennsylvania, next to a park full of waterfalls—then moved to Upstate New York (with a brief layover in Massachusetts!). I’ve designed hundreds of books and covers—even edited a few NY Times bestsellers along the way.

I’ve also been known to code, take photos, or just be a rational mind to help organize your next big idea—reach out to see how I can help you.
