About the Artist

Hello and thank you for visiting my website! I’m Melissa Thomas, an Indiana-based artist and illustrator with a passion for spreading joy through my work. I’m a Holy Cross at Notre Dame alumna with a dual degree in graphic design/studio art and a focus in illustration.


As a huge pop culture fan, I enjoy taking inspiration from franchises like Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, and Star Trek to not only re-create iconic cinematic moments in my head, but to use these motivations and create original characters of my own. 


When I’m not creating artwork, I love taking long walks outside, playing piano, drinking hot tea, and enjoying time with my friends. 


If you’d like to request a commission from me or chat about freelance opportunities, please get in touch!
