Morning Reverie



Melissa Anderson began painting with only one brush and three tubes of paint. A sabbatical from a law career opened the door to exploring the world around her, discovering the colors and shapes that inspire her work.  Melissa quickly took the hours and discipline of her law practice and applied it to her artistic education through self-directed training with nationally recognized artists including Cynthia Packard, Carolyn Anderson and Alice Williams, reading, studying and frequenting museums and galleries drawing inspiration from Degas, Manet, Cezanne and many Russian Impressionists.

Anderson’s work may be seen at Art & Light and Mary Praytor galleries.  Her work is in numerous private and public collections including The Greenville Art Museum, The City of Greenville, County Bank, McCall Hospice House, and The Cascades. Anderson’s recent exhibition, “Hidden Treasures: South Carolina Landscapes,” hung at the Greenville Chamber of Commerce.  In April 2014,  she was honored to hang a painting in Congressman Trey Gowdy’s Washington office. Anderson lives and works in Greenville, S.C.
