Painter, mural artist, illustrator, and designer.

I was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I grew up sketching and doodling on just about anything and simply creating art that made me happy. Early on, I painted with oils but quickly learned that the medium was not right for me. Then, I moved to acrylics and fell in love with their creamy texture, drying time, and easy clean-up. Art was my pastime for many years but it was not until 2017 that I started selling my work.

Creating art is my therapy. It has gotten me through many challenging times including the pandemic. In 2020, I left my career in the marketing industry and opened my own business. Now I create art that I love and you can enjoy it in your home, business, or community. And I use my marketing experience and design skills to help local entrepreneurs and small family-owned businesses grow as a way to support my community. Opening Melissa S Zane Studios LLC is one of the best decisions I ever made.
