M. Herriott ART
Thank you for stopping by! My name is Melissa Herriott. I call Charlotte, NC home (by way of Upstate New York).
I recently started painting again after a 20-year hiatus. A trip to my hometown (and visit to my high school art room) inspired me to create again. After an encouraging push from my husband… here I am.
I paint what brings me joy; what I want to surround myself with. I create art that I would want to decorate my home and office with.
I love bright colors, abstract shapes, and I use gold any (and every) chance I get.
While I appreciate realism in art, I gravitate towards the abstract. My hope is to make you FEEL something.
When you purchase something handmade from an artist you are buying more than a painting. You're buying hours of trial and error, countless “failed” attempts, small victories, tears of frustration, and broad smiles of joyous celebration. You’re taking home hours of deliberation... pouring over colors, shapes, shades, and mediums. Time spent creating, matting, backing, wiring, framing. Your support is a nudge from the universe that we are on the right track. Proof that art speaks to places inside of us that connect without words.
You’re taking home a piece of the person who made it.
