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 and was the recipient of 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 a traditional desk job for Crayola at the start of her career, she escaped 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 at her desk, you can find her foraging for wild edible and medicinal plants, camping out on mountains, or belting her heart out at karaoke (seriously). She's a lover of the natural world, but also thrives in the warming glow of technology.


She also really likes loose leaf tea.
