• Melinda’s award winning illustrations have been featured in print publications, product design, and packaging as well as displayed in international juried exhibitions. Her background as a graphic designer has allowed her to work with surface design, product development, package design, and product display. She’s developed brand identities, print collateral campaigns, and multi-media promotions.


  • I love that sense of wonder in the world that we felt so often as children, and I strive to keep discovering more wonder whatever I’m doing, wherever I’m going. My illustrations have taken top honors at prominent shows and juried competitions, including SCBWI regional events, Masterworks of New Mexico, the CPSA Annual International Exhibition, as well as being featured in print publications, product design, and packaging. I serve as the SCBWI New Mexico Region Illustrator Coordinator.
