Get To Know Melissa

Melissa Mercer Brown lives on Scenic 30A along the emerald coast of Walton County Florida where the breathtaking landscape and coastline provide a constant source for her inspiration.  Her style of painting is often using a lot of texture and translucent layering of washes to capture the changing sea and skies.  The drama of the weather along with its effect with light on the coastal horizon, dune lakes and coastal vegetation are subjects that she longs to paint. She finds strength, support and encouragement from her beautiful family, friends, fellow artists and living faith.
