Melina Sue is a multi-discipline, mixed media artist, treasure hunter and soulsearcher (SL and RL). No matter the medium… her Art has always been a manifestation of her personal journey. My heart says infinitely more then these words can communicate. ♥Melina Sue
I was introduced to Melina’s art when she picked up a gallery in CorsicaSouthCoasters at CK’s Corner in the Garden Roof Galleries. The soothing palette drew my eyes the lovely depth had me look more. Melina seems to foray into a wide range of mediums and styles all seem to carry a depth of spirit. Iam enjoying seeing more of her work in Second life. Between Melina’s portraiture, mixed media and photography you are sure to find her work speaking to you too. Melina has an uplifting gift and shares it well!
I asked Melina a few questions I’ll share here :
How did your Artistic Journey in Second Life begin?
Melina’s response: ” I started in SL 2009 and in 2010 I started to work as a photographer and musician in SL Few years later.
I`ve had a longer break in SL (6 years) and came back in 2021 and started again as a digital artist and painter with some new ideas. I draw portraits of avatars and show my rl paintings 🙂 ”
Where is your favorite place in Second Life to go to help get your creativity “moving”?
Melina’s response: “At the moment I enjoy my own little land at most …and I love to take one of my Teegle horses and look around nice and quit sims like “ROCKMEAD” or I take my little sailing boat and sail along the sea… all these things brings my creativity moving.”
Is there an artistic medium you can not do with out and what is it also why?
Melina response: “I can not build artful sculptures because for the most I have work with Blender…. and that is not mine 🙂 Nobody can do all … :)))”
What would a dream project be for you artistically?
Melina response: “Oh I have lots of ideas for project. I would love to do a big show here in sl with different art and artists…. something you can call: Dream Circus … btw this is a long RL dream too …but its easier to do in sl because of the money for such a big project 🙂 People who would come to my “Dream Circus” would get a little “magical” stone or something like that :… so they will remember at this special day and it makes them smile …. this project shall make the people smile 🙂 Hope I can realize it one day in sl …. ”
(I actually have a few ideas for how you can get that started Mel)
How do you feel about art and its influence on society?
Melina response: “Art makes a lot for people ( sl and rl ) … it can give them memories and feelings. “
What a lovely look into an artists thought thank you for sharing Melina!
