Melissa Rinaldi grew up in the Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky, and has been creating art since a very young age. Being homeschooled through her early years allowed her the flexibility to develop her skill as an artist and explore her natural talent. During summers in high school and college she enjoyed painting murals, teaching, and lifeguarding in South Carolina and abroad in Madrid, Spain.
She has always had a passion for art, design, illustration and nature. Melissa currently resides in Palm Beach County, Florida, and is becoming known for her bright coastal style.
