073 Melody Owens: Fine Artist, Love Is My Medium

Every child is an artist without having to think about it.


Melody Owens

is captivated by the mystery and the beauty that make a person iconic and revered.

“I am inspired to paint women in classic beauty, illuminate heroines with a Hollywood glow and revive vintage elegance in a contemporary age. I aim to capture the radiance of soft light and diffuse certain features contrasted by focused details. Bright colors and textures can give the eye a sensory pleasure. In my work I play with the balance of abstraction. I use loose but determined strokes to blend details and realism. My choice of media is acrylic followed by oil. Sometimes, I mix it up by starting with a gouache base. The luminescence in my art is often amplified with jewels and the glossy shine of silver leaf contrasting strong rustic textures.

Mostly self taught, I’ve been lucky to have apprenticed with a few of the most skilled artists in Utah & California. Growing up in Utah in an extremely artistic family encouraged me to pursue my passion of art. The roller coaster of life took me from Utah to Las Vegas where I opened a studio teaching my photo realism style seen on www.LiquidLead-Art.com. A few hard years running a studio flew by once I found the peacefulness reflected in my art.

Art itself is healing, so my creative inspiration has led me on the path of becoming an energy healer and yoga teacher. In my current studio in Newport Beach, painting full time and happily creating, I enjoy the occasional surf break to chase down a perfect glossy wave.” ~ Melody Owens
