Melissa Matherly has a degree in fine arts and design and worked as a sign painter and calligrapher throughout college. Her mom owned an advertising agency for many decades, so she has been around graphics and design her whole life. Her passion is in painting the people, structures and landscapes depicting “place”. Her most recent watercolor and acrylic paintings, bookmarks, cards and booklets are of Paonia, Colorado, where she and Mark Androes live. Mark is a former jeweler with a keen eye for form and function. After a forty-year stint in his wholesale and retail jewelry business, he has now returned to his Cubist acrylic and oil painting roots.
