Hey There, I'm Melissa!
Growing up I was drawn to activities that allowed me to express myself in a creative way. As an only-child raised by a single-mother, I naturally became comfortable with the space of solitude. My time alone gifted me access to curiosity and the freedom to "tinker" with anything I could get my hands on. It was clear early on in my life I was meant to create.
College was anything but easy for me and I spent 5 years trying to figure out how to insert my odd introverted self into the world. To relieve my mind of the worry and stress around “what will I do with my life,” I immersed myself into art electives and workshops outside of classes, with the biggest names in visionary art. Art gave me the opportunity to dive deep into creative projects and express myself in a way that felt natural and authentic. Little did I know that I was actively answering my own question of what to do with my life, I was already doing it. It wasn’t until a college professor pointed out to me, “you are a great artist, do that,” that it all clicked together and I clearly saw what was right in front of me. I am an artist and creative.
There have been a lot of ups and downs, great failures and unexpected successes that got me to where I am today, founder of Be Moved Branding and Designs!

I believe in developing art that is not just pretty to look at, but has something very powerful to say.
