Melissa Carrelli received her BFA
from Western Kentucky University.
A love of pastels taught her to see color
in unexpected places.
... the curve of a neck,
shadows  and,
light on faces,
flowers and still life.

Melissa loves painting animals
and that love has led her to painting
our beloved pets

"I "

Her painting is so realistic I truly thought and prayed that Zia was going to turn around and lick me. It has made her passing so much more bearable and now that I have this marvelous painting of her hanging in my home to look at every day.

Melissa is such a talented artist!  I purchased a silent auction "paint your pet" portrait at an SPCA event   I was overwhelmed, Melissa  captured every detail of my dog's true personality. Just beautiful - thank you!

Melissa has a unique style that captures your pets personality perfectly. We love her painting of our dog, Danke.

I had Melissa paint a picture of our two dogs as a present for my wife. She was professional throughout the process.  The results were marvelous. My wife cried tears of joy when she opened it. 

"If you love your love your pet  the way I do,
please consider a Carrelli Portrait of your beloved pet.
I will always cherish and treasure this work of art"
