and signed art prints from Melasdesign artist Susan Hicks. Susan’s signature is visionary art created of pure, full spectrum, color. Abstract paintings in oil and acrylic showcase bold expressive brushstrokes and are alive with implied visual motion. Signed prints sold on-site feature colorful illustrations from dreams to dark art and landscapes, plus digital abstract art.
Melasdesign Handmade Shop is the culmination of Susan Hicks’ goal to make a workable artist experience from home while struggling with a Myasthenia Gravis diagnosis
along with other chronic illnesses. This art is medicine as well as expression. Metal clay jewelry design in silver, bronze, and copper has allowed Susan to create pendants and beads in a fashion that is not quite as physical as traditional jewelry crafting. Digital art and illustration has provided a way to work on days when weakness is an issue, or spasms make brush control awkward. On strong, relaxed days, there’s traditional painting offered in this independent art shop.
The Melasdesign Handmade Shop is a means of artistic expression. Being a good Gemini, Susan is comfortable spanning styles from elegant and fine traditional jewelry and traditional illustration to fun and funky horror, dark art and goth themes. Two souls in one breast.
