Melissa has a predilection for free expression in painting. She has recurring themes (self-portrait, childhood, family ...) but what she likes is to be surprised. For a few years she has been performing by putting herself in front of her paintings. She likes to solicit the spectator and to ask him to wonder about the act of creating.

She likes to vary the mediums (painting, drawing, engraving, serigraphy, installation, performance, photography). It is always a possibility to express oneself in a different way. She likes that there is movement, that nothing is fixed.
