About the Artist

Melissa Findley I’m a twenty-something freelance artist, illustrator and sometime graphic designer. I’m almost entirely self taught, (my major in college was in theater and writing, it wasn’t till after I graduated that I decided to go into the art field), but I’ve got experience in a myriad of mediums: pencil, pen, chalk pastel, acrylic, oil, watercolor, mixed media, etc. Mostly, however, I’m a digital artist.

I’m currently doing covers, regularly, for Cobblestone Press, a publisher of ebooks mostly in the fantasy/paranormal/contemporary romance genre. However I occasionally take private commissions, and if you are an art director, please feel free to contact me.

Outside of art I enjoy reading (mostly fantasy, and paranormal romance), movies, baking, spending time with my family, and playing with my two insane cats.

    I FOUND YOUR WORK IN DEVIANT ART AND I WAS SO TAKEN WITH THE SHARPENED HEART THAT I HAD TO E-MAIL YOU. WOULD YOU CONSIDER DOING THE OTHER QUEENS IN THE CARD DECK? YOU HAVE THE SHARPENED HEART AS THE QUEEN OF HEARTS. THEN A VARIATION OF HER FOR THE QUEENS OF DIAMONDS SPADES AND CLUBS. LIKE A PURPLE QUEEN OF DIAMONDS A GREEN QUEEN OF SPADES AND A BLUE QUEEN OF CLUBS. ALL WITH THE SAME COLOR INTENSITY AS THE SHARPENED HEART. JUST A THOUGHT. I LOVE YOUR WORK AND SO DOES MY MOM. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOUR LATEST WORK. HAVE A GREAT EVENING, JOELLEN

    Hey Melissa, im josh im 16 and im a growing sketch artist.
    Ive read everything youve written on your website and seen most of your art.
    i cant really describe how inspiring your art work, and Words are to me as an Artist. it just makes me want to pull out a book and draw all day.
    and i fully agree with you, on how people dont really take art that seriously.
    Love your work, hope to see more :) ~ Josh

    Hi Melissa!
    Wow, you are sooo talented. Really love your work and I’m so sad that your Gypsy painting is not for sale.

    Just watched one of your videos and you are a real inspiration. Keep up the good work.

    When I found your art on conceptart.com, I was totally blown away! You really know your stuff about design. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m absolutely jealous of you. Lol! Keep up the absolutly gorgeous work!

    Hi Mel. How have you been ? I just went checking some of the entries in your journal, they were very informative. You make me feel like joining ConceptArt too, but right now my problem is time …
    Anyway, great site you have here, I hope you are well.
    And I am VERY jealous of you for having met all those online friends in person. GRrrrrr :-(

    Fall into the calm within the storm
    Join the merriment of dancers
    where love is a whisper
    from which each breath expands
    for sweet co-creation
