Melissa Babcock Saylor is a native Oregonian. She has worked in the art field her whole adult life. Her early career was in advertising and editorial art. Later she ran a small greeting card business. That lead to licensing her artwork for a variety of products. But now, her main focus is in illustration. It's what she started out to do many years ago. Better late than never!
Melissa lives in the beautiful Willamette Valley with her husband Steve. She spends her days painting paper and creating colorful artwork. She also loves a good cup of tea and taking Lois (her corgi) for walks.
