ar⋅tis⋅tic: -adjective, exhibiting an involvement in or appreciation of art, esp. the fine arts.
ar⋅chi⋅tect: -noun, the deviser, maker, or creator of anything.

I’d like to think that these two particular definitions describe me in both my personal and professional life. My name is Melissa, those closest to me call me Lissa, and I am a devoted daughter, sister, wife and mother. I’ve held an array of professional nine-to-fives in the architectural, graphic and fine-art worlds but am currently employed with a fine art giclee enterprise as their Color Specialist. I have a loving interest for architecture and art, I majored in the two for my student career. (Coincidental note: most of my artistic projects are very architecturally laid out.) I believe art forms (whether fine art, architecture, photography, or graphic designs) create feelings for the viewer to experience which then triggers an appreciation. The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. Michelangelo

Melissa Spence lives in a suburb of Austin, Texas. A true Southern California girl, now enjoys life with her family in the Live Music Capital of the World exploring new adventures and sites to see. She is absorbed in her blog documenting and sharing photographs about life, ohana (family), beliefs and work.
