Acrylic Abstracts

Aquatic Pirouette

Many of my abstract works are a combination of abstract acrylic paintings and beaded creations or added beads, stones, and other misc. objects. Visit “My Art” and/or my Slideshow to see more examples

Inspiration for Aquatic Pirouette (above): The swirling ocean and twirling ocean life between the fertile land, the breaking waves, the majestic sky, and the twirling swirling life that inhabits them all. (NFS)

Art 84

Melanie Hickerson, “1956 (West Texas)”

In addition to creating jewelry, decorative arts, and graphic design, I also am the Director of Art 84, a non-profit that presents impactful original art, music, and dance through technology, media, and events.

RePurposeful Art

RePurposeful Waves
Created using upcycled soda bottles.
Surprises under the waves!
RePurposeful Wildflowers –
Acrylic painted background &
upcycled soda bottle flowers

I often use upcycled materials in my art and enjoy seeing the juxtaposition and interplay of the different media. The waves and flowers shown in the pieces above are created using soda bottles.

I design and create many different styles of jewelry using a variety of new and repurposed beads and other items. Visit my Jewelry page, “My Art” and/or my Slideshow to see more examples. Contact me for pricing and other information.
