Born and raised in Cincinnati, Melissa Moss, who now lives in Asheville, NC, has a background in color psychology and is well versed in the meanings of colors and their subtle shades and tones. Painting on wood with acrylic, Melissa combines colors in an arresting way, creating a tinted world that is very much her own invention.
Melissa’s paintings of delicate trees and otherworldly flowers may depict adorable creatures in peril or pretty pink flowers attacking a forlorn tree. Tiny details are not always evident at first glance. Often fantastical, this is the subterranean landscape that lies beneath a child’s fairy tale or a Saturday morning cartoon.
Melissa’s work has exhibited at galleries in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
