Melonie Frierson is a mixed-media painter who uses art as a form of communication. She hails from the southern east coast—South Carolina and Georgia. The Texas artist finds her self-expression in art and the mediums she uses to create. Her painting style varies from project to project, giving her space to grow and change her method of expression. Gathering inspiration from dreams, the lives of other people, and her every-day experiences, Melonie aspires to influence feelings and ideas in her audience that extends beyond spoken words and phrases.
“I want whoever views my work to have their own special and unique connection with it. I want them to reflect on how it makes them feel and what it makes them think about; the audience should decide what my art means to them.”
Melonie currently lives in Houston, expanding her current body of work and attaining her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art.
