Malissa has been coloring outside the lines for as long as she can remember. With equal parts love for art and compassion for people, Malissa has a Master’s degree in Art Therapy from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. Malissa is an Oklahoma native with her Bachelor’s degree in Art from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Malissa currently resides in Oklahoma City, enjoys her large, boisterous family, her very spoiled cat, all art, all music, creating art in the kitchen, entertaining friends and family with good food and wine, and helping others. Malissa’s primary artistic influences are nature, expressive symbols and vintage style with a love for color and texture. Malissa believes that art is for everyone and is as much about the process as the product.
