Who is Melody Nieves?
“I’m a digital artist with big hair and an even bigger passion for creativity. I started digitally painting back in 2006 and have been in love ever since. When I’m not painting I’m a regular contributor to some of my favorite design blogs.
I like to categorize my work into 3 short areas. Digital paintings, design, and more recently, photo manipulations and effects.
My personal work is purely autobiographical. I paint symbolic scenes of a life and childhood growing up in a seaport town on Long Island. Though you’ll often see self portraits and nautical themes in my art, I also work to push my own limitations by trying new styles, software, and mediums.
And learning is my specialty. A self-taught artist, I take all my experiences as lessons to share with fellow creatives. I also create a lot of project-based tutorials and courses to help you understand more about digitally painting hair, faces and more.
My focus is to show you how to explore new and creative activities with patience and persistence. So join me sometime for one of my online creative lessons!” (source)
