Melissa Kenyon McIntyre
I am a New Mexico based artist with a studio in Taos Canyon.
I consider myself to be primarily a painter but I find that other creative endeavors help keep me focused. I work in acrylic, oil, watercolor, tile, glues, grout and stains. Currently I am most focused on block printing.
New Mexico is an incredible source of inspiration with amazing sunsets, the huge sky with fascinating cloud formations, old villages with cracked and crumbling adobe walls, and the beautiful old churches with their magnificent interiors. I'm also inspired by the old family property in Southwestern Colorado with it's family history, miniature collections, old buildings, farm implements, rusty vehicles and ancient cottonwoods-these things often find their way into my work.
