Melissa Mack is an interior designer and contemporary abstract artist who lives and works in Fairfield County CT. Born and raised in NYC, she grew up surrounded by art and culture from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Studio 54 and The Limelight.
Melissa's holistic design approach incorporates her unique life long learning paths combined with a love of beautiful spaces and aesthetics. At Om In The Home we believe that your surroundings affect not just your level of material comfort, but also your physical and mental health, your relationships, and success in the world. Melissa integrates her years as a Clinical Therapist, Residential and Commercial Interior Designer, Feng Shui Master, and Reiki Master to bring balance and harmony to other peoples lives through interior design and art.
Melissa's mixed media paintings capture the beauty of natural elements and their inherent energy. She studies natural forms, especially crystals, plants, and water, to express the energy, movement, flow of these forms and the life force they exude. She depicts the concrete world in an abstract form and is intrigued by what lies beyond our sight. Melissa lets meditation guide her creative process. She practices daily meditation with a brush in hand and lets images flow from intuition. While she works across multiple media, she is drawn to ink, because of the freedom it gives her to release control. Ink flows where it wants, so wherever it takes her she embraces the need to go with it and welcomes the mystery of what is to come. In each piece Melissa captures vibrant positive energy and adds crushed crystals into the paint to bring healing energy into each work. Some pieces are ethereal and some vibrant. But all are based on healing energy because energy is the universal force that connects us all.
A studio arts minor in college, life took Melissa on a more traditional career path as she earned an MS Degree from Columbia University. After many years of practice as a clinical therapist she left that field to return to her true passion: art and aesthetic design. She attained a degree from Fairfield University in Commercial and Residential Interior Design. As her interior design practice evolved, Melissa continued her studies into holistic design and energy work, becoming a Reiki Master and Feng Shui Master. She now integrates her lifelong learning paths to create balance and harmony through design and art.
