Melissa Anthony is an up and coming artist born in Chicago and raised in the south suburbs of Markham, IL. Art has become a luxury in the sense that it requires valuable time. I use that time to create things for my pleasure and for the pleasure of others. These creations are artifacts, stamps of places and time. I share these artifacts through my prints, paintings, custom shoes, and drawings. My intent is to move the heart as the eyes do. I create art assuming that there are no rules, therefore boundaries can be challenged. Time is awarding me with opportunities to meet those boundaries and surpass them. I am an artist.
