Melissa Hutton grew up on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. After surviving high school (and multiple Spring breaks), she roamed around for a few years until finally getting her shit together and hooking up with the circus. OK, not really, but she did get accepted into Ringling College of Art & Design where she focused for over a year on ceramics, printmaking and organizing the school’s first fine arts group. When the opportunity arose to attend The San Francisco Art Institute, she took it, and graduated with a BFA degree in printmaking and film.
Melissa currently paints in her home studio in Napa, CA. She works in a variety of mediums such as acrylics, screen printing and spray paints. Illustrative images and pop-inspired color fields tell stories both personal and observational.
