                  b.1959

                  Born in Colorado, Melissa was raised with the appreciation of wildlife and art. Both of her parents are established artists–her mother a china painter and her father a sculptor. For ten years, she assisted her father in finishing pieces at the foundry level before ever sculpting work of her own. With the basics behind her, her work has evolved into the style you see today. From monument size cougars and bears that will stare you down to tabletop bunnies that will steal your heart, Melissa has a natural ability to capture the spirit of life and emotion in each of her sculptures.

                  The face is the most important part of the piece, the place where she can most express herself. It is also the most detailed area of her pieces, as she tends to portray with rest of the body with smooth lines and simplicity. She refers her style as “realistic impressionism” and “robust or fluffy.” She uses patina as another way to express texture in her work. Although Melissa has found her own style she insists she is still evolving. Melissa works out of her studio in Littleton, Colorado. She has two grown children and her family comes first, her work second. Most importantly “I give the Lord the thanks for the gifts he has given me.”

                          To our Valued Customers

                           

                          During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty.  We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family.  We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times.  We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time.  Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.

                          Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public.  We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend.  Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts.  Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate.  If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out.  Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
