Contemporary Coastal Abstract Art

Inspired by the Sea

Hi, I’m Melissa Marquardt. I am a contemporary artist working with acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media. I am all about the color blue. All shades. All the time. I find my inspiration in nature among the southern California coastline and have a deep connection with the horizon line, it keeps me grounded. My personal goal is to create works of art that give collectors a feeling of peace and tranquility, intending never to paint a specific location, but to allow the paint to dictate the scene and transport each individual to a place in their own memory or imagination.
