Melissa Pierson Artwork.jpg

We are delighted to share the art of Melissa Pierson  Melissa has volunteered for - and has been painting in - natural areas of Northern Illinois for a very long time.

Melissa spent many years as a restoration volunteer in Lake County which has helped train her eye to the finer details.  She finds it essential to paint only what she herself has seen and to have knowledge of her topic.

Melissa sees her work as a meaningful way to share the healing that she finds in the beauty of nature.  Her wish is for her works to help people connect with nature as it is right here n the Chicago wilderness that so may of us call home.  "What we love, we will care for."

Melissa has been pushing her work more in the direction of abstract design, a process she finds a bit scary and with some risk but says "I love it!" We think you will tool
