A little bit about Melissa Tereck....
I guess you could almost say I was born an artist. From the moment I could hold a crayon I was busy drawing things. I got my first actual commission as an artist in third grade when my teacher asked me to make all the halloween decorations for the classroom. I was thrilled, this was followed by making more for Christmas, art classes soon followed.
In college while I continued my art studies, I added marketing to them. This lead to working in the retail world and eventually the fashion industry. Somewhere along the way I stumbled back to art finding myself not only working with paper mache but creating a collection for the wholesale market.
While this was exciting it was also a bit overwhelming. It seemed best to step back and rediscover the creative side as well as the fun of doing art. So while I still travel the road doing shows they are the ones where I can create one of a kind pieces for the people that so kindly collect the art I create. That's my tale of me - it's very simple I'm an artist!.
