Melissa Delprete’s paintings and drawings are informed by a dedicated doodle practice that travels with her wherever she goes. Layers of lines and organic shapes take on forms which interact within atmospheres of washed colors on unprimed masonite, linen, and wood. Characters, landscapes, moods, and scenarios reveal themselves — an invitation to explore, imagine, and look inward. 

Melissa grew up on Long Island and studied at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Upon graduating with a BFA in 2009, she was awarded the Excellence in Painting distinction. In 2015, Melissa earned an MS in Art Education and began teaching freelance art courses while simultaneously deepening her art practice. She currently resides in Lake Worth Beach, FL.
