Melissa Doty is new to “arting”, as she likes to call it. A Charleston resident and lifelong doodler, Melissa began drawing and creating with purpose last summer, eventually finding and falling in love with watercolors in the fall. She is self-taught, and enjoys trying different mediums. She works primarily in watercolor and acryla gouache, and is scaling up to larger pieces. Currently, she is focusing on her “West Virginia” and “geometrics” series, but landscapes and bright florals are often in the mix as well. Her work is currently available at Charlie on Bridge Road, and she will have both large and small works on paper displayed and available for purchase at Virginia Lee.
