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.
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’)
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.
