Melissa moved to Idaho in the fall of 2007 and enrolled in the Masters of Fine Arts program at the University of Idaho. Her interest in sculpture began during her senior year of high school when she won a “Best of Show” award for a fabric painting/sculpture she did. Melissa focused on sculpture in college and continued to enter local and national art shows. She has been casting bronze and aluminum for nearly five years and has now designed the Legacy of Leading Award for 2009, during the second year of her master’s program.
