Maryland, USA

Birth year




Melissa Lillie is known for paintings that reference natural forms using a personal visual language of vibrant colors and complex layers to reflect on the macroscopic and microscopic world. Her paintings evoke a sense of space that has been flattened and layered, revealing strands and structures of line and color interacting fluidly with hidden landscapes.

She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in General Sculptural Studies.

She currently lives and works in North Adams, Massachusetts.
