Melissa Hyatt is an accomplished watercolor artist, surface pattern designer, and illustrator. She loves to create and paint in her sunlit Long Island, NY studio with her golden retriever April by her side. Melissa graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in surface pattern design. She then honed her design skills in her work as design director for Waverly Fabrics, and she has worked in textiles as an artist, color consultant, and stylist for over twenty years. In 2015, Melissa launched her own brand. Her art has been seen on products from companies such as Martha Stewart, Calypso Cards, Westpoint Home and Pier One Imports.
This year at Blueprint Show 1 she will debut her Nantucket Collection featuring watercolor sea creatures in shades of blues. Whales, lobsters, shells, coral, and seahorses swim across the designs creating plenty of options for coordination.
Another new Collection is called Seaside Shorebirds in which soft shades of aqua and natural tones create textures, which compliment the sandpipers, piping plovers, and terns.
There will be Holiday and Christmas designs inspired by New England Winters, Colorful Vintage Trees, and an Enchanted Winter Woodland theme.
Stop by Melissa’s booth #22 at Show 1 May 17-19th and by appointment on May 20.
