Melissa grew up in the nurturing lands of the Pacific Northwest. She has always been captivated by the healing power of art and words as a tool for connection to the heart, and has been journaling for twenty years. Melissa graduated with an interdisciplinary University degree exploring Women’s Health, The Expressive Arts, and Awareness Through the Body. It was here that she discovered a deep love for painting with watercolors. Soon after, Melissa had her first real connection with tea and has been nurturing that relationship for the past thirteen years. Melissa is also a body and energy worker, a drummer, and a wool felter. She is a true honeybee at heart, bridging together all of her various loves into a unique healing offering of bodywork, tea and flower medicine, visual art, womens circles, and creative journaling inspiration. Melissa is committed to everyone finding their own inner artist, and seeks to inspire the flow of creativity in all hearts.
