melissa husted-sherman bio

Melissa Husted-Sherman has a BA in psychology and an MC in counseling from the University of Delaware.  After working in crisis counseling, she left the field intending to pursue a degree in landscape architecture. A landscape design course reignited her love of drawing and painting, leading to another change in direction - using painting to capture her experience of the landscape into color and line.  Since then, she has had solo and group exhibitions throughout the region.  Her work has moved away from pure representation of the landscape to a more abstract expression of ideas involving the impact of the passage of time and the impermanence of beauty. Inspiration for her work comes from such diverse sources as Renaissance painting, decaying buildings, maps, architectural diagrams, erosion, evolving landscapes and scenes from everyday life.
