Melissa Vlahos studied at Youngstown State University in Ohio and majored in Visual Art and Multi-Age Licensure in Art Education receiving a Bachelor’s of Science in Education in 2009. She taught high school art and also private art lessons to a wide range of ages and abilities.

Traveling and living abroad took her out of the classroom setting and into her art studio to concentrate on her own artistic growth and development. She says, “Living in Greece has shaped and directed my artistic choices of subject matter because I explored and discovered my passion for the beauty in nature and how it mimics my inner emotions. Nature has showed me all her raw, beautiful magnificence and I feel a connection to it that I enjoy transmitting through artistic expression. The experience of presence with nature creates a parallel connection with oneself, it moves me and the feelings inside of me intuitively flow from my internal world out onto a canvas or through a photograph.”

Currently, Melissa Vlahos can be found settled in South Florida in her full photography studio, where she also paints and teaches private art lessons, located in the art district of FAT Village, 535 NW 1st Ave. Studio 2, Fort Lauderdale, FL, 33301. The FAT Village Artwalk is held the last Saturday of every month from 6pm-10pm

“My artwork is an expression of emotional energy intuitively creating a flowing oneness between the outer world and our inner world.”

Melissa Vlahos explores her passion for the beauty in nature and how it mimics her inner emotions. She feels a connection to the element of water and how it relates to feminine energy and expresses this theme throughout her art work. Parallel to this, Vlahos believes in human vibrational energy and its relationship in nature and its presence everywhere including her art works using various mediums of photography, oil and acrylic painting, fused glass or clay to express that relationship intuitively.
