Signed prints sold on-site feature colorful illustrations from dreams to dark art and landscapes, plus digital abstract art. Uniquely Melasdesign, it’s Susan Hicks’ online original art shop.
Why is this art visionary? It’s a direct product of artist Susan Hicks’ inner “Mela.” Some designs come from meditation (see “Meditation One”), others from the muse of music (always on while painting “Truth – die Wahrheit“). A deep love of animals shows through in pet portraits. “Ajax Watches the World Go By” has been very popular. Who could pass up the heartfelt “Agatha and Other Classics” cat portrait illustration of the lovely calico kitty? Color in and of itself is an object of love in Susan’s heart. See abstract art colorist offerings like “Feed My Ego.”
While Susan’s art is bold colorful, her original handmade jewelry designs are sculptural adventures in form. Even so, they evoke a certain emotion. There’s the joyous “Bouquet in Bronze Necklace” and chic “Twinkling Tubes Necklace.” Experience pure expression of motion with “The Organic Waveform Pendant.” Then there the other direction Susan loves to explore. These are goth and geek jewelry designs out of Virginia and West Virginia. Get a little dark with the “Screaming Skull with Red Eyes Necklace” and be a little empty with the “Sacred Nothing Necklace.” There are necklaces perfect for science and sci-fi geeks – “Alien Vertebrae Necklace” for a bit of extra terrestrial intrigue and “Universe in Teal and Silver Necklace” for stargazers.
