Melasdesign is the brand of artist Susan Hicks.

From Alexandria, Virginia / Thomas, West Virginia. Susan offers hand rendered and digital graphics, an emphasis on color. Themes such as abstract design, current political issues, pet portraits, flowers and landscapes make up her portfolio, along with a healthy bent towards dark art / Halloween, dreams, and graphics than look great on RedBubble fashion.

Susan hopes her work will bring a little bit of joy to the viewer. In a world that can be ugly, she tries to add a little color, a little happiness, along with some beautiful spookiness. Then there are some issues that should not be silently ignored – maybe not so pretty, but important.
