Mellen is a creator of beautiful line work and imaginative stories.
She's a graduate of Kutztown University with a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design, where she recieved the Don Breter Excellence in Illustration award.
She is also a traditionally trained tattoo artist with over 3 years experience under her belt. No matter the medium, her careful pen strokes create iconic imagery that's emotional, honest, and impossible to forget.
After working for Crayola at the start of her career, she headed out on a year long adventure living and working full-time in a 20ft camper. Now a freelance artist, she's looking to downsize to #vanlife status and continue exploring.
When she's not working, you can find her foraging for wild edible plants, camping on mountains, or belting her heart out at karaoke (seriously). She's a lover of the natural world, yet thrives in the warming glow of technology.
(She also really likes loose leaf tea.)
