MELANIE BENNETT- SIMS

ART BEGAN IN ALBANY,  NEW YORK  IN 1995 WITH MY FIRST ADVANCED FIGURE DRAWING CLASS AND TRIP TO THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM IN NEW YORK CITY IN HIGH SCHOOL.


I CHOOSE TO ATTEND SPELMAN COLLEGE AND MAJOR IN BIOLOGY WHILE TAKING A FEW ART CLASSES. WHAT I HAVE REALIZED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS IS THAT DRAWING AND PAINTING IS LIKE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR FOR ME, MY SERENITY. 


LATELY I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO USE MY PASSION FOR ART TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB. I WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY WITH A PORTION OF MY PROFITS RAISED WITH MY ARTWORK. 


WHEN I AM NOT PAINTING I ALSO ENJOY SPENDING TIME WITH MY HUSBAND AND TWO BOYS, PLAYING AND COACHING SOCCER, RUNNING, AND QUILTING.
