Native Texan and East Dallas resident, Melissa Stinson Ellis, specializes in abstract and contemporary nature oil paintings. Her bold use of color is apparent in all of her work, from her large-scale, heavily-textured abstracts, to her delicate paintings of flowers, plants and trees. She has developed a very distinct style of painting where she creates beautifully unique patterns by applying thick oil paint to the canvas using palette knives. Melissa’s abstract work is often described as ‘organized chaos’, referring to the spontaneous yet highly calculated and meticulous processes she uses to create motion, patterns, texture and depth in her work.
