Melissa Hyatt is an accomplished watercolor artist, surface pattern designer, and illustrator. Her design process is inspired by the beauty that surrounds her sunlit studio on Long Island’s North Fork.

Melissa's artwork has been licensed  for many notable companies, including greeting cards for Calypso Cards, bedding and dinnerware for Martha Stewart Omnimedia, fabrics for Waverly Fabrics, Schumacher, Home Accent Fabrics, and Belle Maison, bedding for Westpoint Home, home decor for Pier One Imports and wallpaper for Brewster Wallcoverings. Melissa also has her own online shop where she offers her unique designs on cards, prints, tea towels and more.

Melissa’s daily painting process takes place in her studio, where she draws and paints in an ever-growing stack of sketchbooks. Melissa believes that the magic of watercolors is letting go; letting the paint and water flow together on the page. You can see Melissa’s most recent work here.
