Artist Name

Melissa McGill

Born: 1966

Hometown: New York

Based in: Las Vegas, NV

Melissa McGill’s abstract personal landscapes are expressions of colour and texture. Embracing the imperfect beauty of the world around her, Melissa works primarily with acrylic on raw canvas. Spontaneous gestural marks layered over ethereal, colour stained canvas mimic nature through pouring, scraping and mark making.

Melissa worked as an illustrator and designer in NYC before focusing entirely on painting. Her client list included The NBA, Adobe, Sony Music and more. Her paintings and mixed media work can be found in collections around the world and have been featured by Saatchi Art in their catalog. A regular exhibitor at The Other Art Fair, Melissa has shown her work in NY, LA, Dallas and Chicago.

She currently lives in Las Vegas, NV with her husband, their son, an assortment of cats and their Border Collie, Dallas.
