Melissa Angles, a Tazewell, Virginia artist, graduated in 2013 from Sterling College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art. The main themes in her watercolor and oil paintings revolve around nature and examining all the details in God’s creation.
Her work can be startlingly realistic, sometimes figurative and always reaching for a deeper feeling. Her conceptual pieces are often titled with biblical references. Currently, she is rendering landscapes and painting pet portraits.
