Melissa Sorensen
Artist

Since as far as I can remember I had a paint brush in my hand. Art was a major focus in high school for me; across all mediums including pottery.  Painting was always my favorite and felt a real connection. Despite being accepted to art school for college; life pulled me in a different direction - with another calling for many years. Although not always in the forefront, Art has always been the backbone of who I am. From commission to donation work; I have continued my passion for the arts. Merlot And A Masterpiece has given me an opportunity to share my passion to others, to help them relax, find some peace, and have fun!
