‘Let me introduce you to Melissa Hin’


Melissa's emphasis in Fine Art is in exploring the expression of emotion through the use of pure color and composition. Utilizing the complexity of applying/throwing a multitude of colors. Each color dominating various parts of the whole until layer after layer the image is complete. What each color may represents is left to the interpretation of the viewer.   It can represent a feeling, an opinion, an emotion, a part of society or a culture, each color/entity in itself a thing of beauty and when combined, a compelling cooperative part of the whole. 

An Artist residing in Miller Place, New York, Melissa has earned a B.A from Plattsburgh State University in Sociology/Human Services and a B.A. from Stony Brook University in Studio Art and Art History. Her work has been displayed at various galleries located throughout New York and may also be found in numerous private collections throughout the U.S.. Recent works can be found exhibited at The White Room Gallery, Bridgehampton NY and at ArtBlend Gallery, Ft. Lauderdale, FL..

Melissa currently owns and operates MDH CREATIVE ENTERPRISES … a studio in Miller Place, New York with a satellite studio in Bellport, New York. As an instructor of painting Melissa offers instructional studio sessions designed for both the beginner and experienced artist alike. Individualized art instruction, critiquing, and a great artistic dialogue and community are offered. In this setting the student experiences a great ‘Art Experience’ at an affordable rate. Youth Student summer camp is available. Private lessons are available upon request.

In combining her love of people and love of art, Melissa offers a “Create your own Masterpiece” Painting Night Event where she instructs a group of participants, friends, or business associates in the step by step process to complete a select painting. The environment is relaxed and social, designed to promote success, no painting experience needed. Several sites are available. As a corporate team building event associates also accomplish a group cooperative painting or series of paintings which will then hang in a common area within the workplace for all to admire. 

Melissa serves as a Brookhaven Arts and Humanities council Board Member and had served as President of the North Shore Art Guild for several years. In doing so she was in part responsible for coordinating the display of Art throughout several venues, coordinating annual juried and membership shows, and organizing instructional demonstrations. She has acted as juror for both landscape exhibits and figure and faces exhibits. Melissa is also a member of the various local Arts organizations and acts as Art Agent for several local artist exhibiting at private facilities where she curates the exhibits.
