Melissa spent her corporate career in Crisis Management, focusing on Survivor and Family Assistance.
Working with her camera led to a passion for color, texture, and shape. Her Water Colors Collection, macro images created from photos of the bottoms of boats, are abstract art with imagination.
No matter where the camera takes Melissa, her images have a strong painterly feel and speak to people through color and artistry.

Greta Dutton started painting as a child and studied art in college as well as with Pomona Hallenbeck, Mary Ann Davis, and John Budicin.
