Melanie is an artist currently living and working in San Diego, California.

Melanie was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. She found her passion for the arts in television and theater at the age of three, followed by many years in dance.

At age seventeen Melanie opened her own dance school so that she could pass her gifts on to others.

At the age of twenty, Melanie was selected as a choreographer and back up dancer for tours throughout Mexico. In 2003 Melanie started her own talent scouting business. To date, she has completed more than 450 infomercials.

After working so hard for so long, Melanie realized that she had lost touch with her artistic side and she desired to work with children. Looking for a way to express her art, she put brush to canvas in 2007. This has allowed Melanie to pour her heart and soul into her abstracts and express herself through her paintings. This led her to also fulfill her other passion, working with children.

Melanie said goodbye to her business and began working fulltime as an artist. Melanie's art can be found gracing walls in restaurants, salons, businesses and hotels in Los Angeles, Mexico, San Francisco and San Diego. If you ask Melanie what completes her, she will tell you two words, painting and children (las pinturas y los ninos).
