I am an artist, and this is what I do.

I know you're always looking for art, and I am the illustrator who can provide it for you. I draw and paint Pagan themes, create anthropomorphic creatures, and I design decorative textiles. 

Beautiful original art and prints are available here on fine art paper, canvas, and metal media. I believe that art is one of the great necessities of life. So explore fantastical paintings, drawings, in mixed media, pencil and charcoal with art by me, Melissa A Benson. Thanks for stopping by!

My speciality is fantasy, anthropomorphic creatures and Pagan themes. You'll see these subjects represented here with natural forms, Celtic elements, and bold colors in a realistic style.

I have been a professional illustrator for over 25 years. Shivan Dragon and the flaming horse Nightmare from the Magic: the Gathering game are my designs. I created other iconic characters for the game as well. Re-creation commissions of these characters are still very popular to this day.

Art enhances all of your life experiences. This site will show you beautiful, fascinating original artwork and great informative discussions. Many of my images, including bold textiles for interior design and Pagan pieces, are available on collectible merchandise in my Print-on-Demand shops.

Current personal projects are shown on the "Works in Progress" page nested in the About menu. I update this page as often as I can. So explore this site and let me know what you think and what you'd like to see here. I'm always looking for good content that you will find interesting. 

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your visit here.
