About this artist: Melanie Barash Levitt graduated in 1990 from the Rhode Island School of Design and recevied a BFA in Graphic Design. She worked in the graphic design industry for over fifteen  years and was part of the creative team for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.

Melanie spent a year living in Japan and that time had a great influence on her life and her art. She has painted her whole life, but fell in love with plein air (outdoor) painting over fifteen years ago on Monhegan Island, off the coast of Maine. She still paints there in the Summer, but mostly enjoys setting up her easel outside and painting the local landscape of the White Mountains of NH where she resides.

Being outside in nature and taking in the scene and translating that beauty on canvas is her true passion. Melanie paints in a loose, impressionistic style with a brush or a palette knife and likes to focus on creating light and color harmony in her painting. She also teaches painting and printmaking classes at her studio, Jackson Art, and runs art camps for kids in the Summer.

Melanie's artwork resides is in the home of many collectors through the US, Canada and Europe. She has exhibited her artwork in one person and group shows throughout NH and ME, been published in Boston Voyager Magazine, and was recently a featured artist on Boston Chronicle, WCBV TV (ABC).
