Little-Orca's Profile Picture
Melissa L. Thomas
United States
Welcome to the Deviant Art gallery of Melissa Thomas.

This gallery consists of original art works that were inspired by the sea, the dream realm, or causes she is passionate about. Though open to other materials, Melissa's primary medium is watercolor as she finds the fluidity of the paints to be perfect in capturing undersea life.

Melissa Thomas graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Fine Arts, with an unofficial minor in Women's Studies; and a Master's Degree in Art Therapy Counseling from Marylhurst University. Her first direction in college education have been a degree in biology and accumulated much information on vertebrates and invertebrates both macro and micro. Her knowledge of the creatures' biology and physiology aids the representation of them in her works.

"I want to open the eyes of people to the beauty of the natural world, the oceanic environment of whales and dolphins. I want the people that view my work to be instilled with a sense of wonder and beauty found in nature the with hope of provoking them into wanting to protect it."

Be sure to check out the artwork in the "Scraps" section of this site to see more works.

Very beautiful works. The way you brought mermaids into the pictures of whales and dolphins explains the bond between the natural world and humans. i was truly in awe.
