About

Welcome to my art and creative writing portfolio.

My name is Melissa Pelletier and I am an artist and writer from Lindenhurst, NY. My artwork is whimsical, nostalgic, and often full of macabre charm. Pastels are my chosen medium and non-traditional subjects are my favorite choice to explore.

Art Exhibitions:

2021 – Themed Group Show ‘Spirit of Long Island’, The Catbird Seat – Sayville, NY (Work featured, ‘Beach Bound at Gardiner County Park’)

2021 – Themed Group Show ‘Nightmares’, Paperdoll Vintage Boutique – Sayville, NY (Work featured, ‘Killer Klown Ice Cream Scoops’)

Art Awards:

Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts 31st Annual BACCA Judged Art Show – 3rd Place – Pastels (for “Tropical Spell”) and Honorable Mention – Pastels (for “Jackalope With Poppies”)

My published fiction writing is mostly short satire pieces.

I have a MA in Educational Communication and Technology from New York University and a BS in Communications from the University of Miami.
