Melissa Peterson, an artist from Massachusetts is a recent graduate of New Hampshire Institute of Art (Dec 2012). Her artistic motivation comes from her fascination with the relationships between consciousness and the subconscious, dreams, alternate states of perception and the different ways individuals may or may not experience all the layers of reality. She gains inspiration from focusing on the small moments of beauty found in nature, animals and people and the relationships between them. Melissa enjoys working organically and intuitively in order to allow a conversation to happen between her art and herself about its creation and experimenting with technique resulting in a variety of styles throughout her work.
