Hello, I am Melissa, artist and designer at Initial Designs. Initial Designs is really just a name I have attached to my love of art and creating. It has been a dream of mine since I was a child. I specialize in lettering, but can do many types of paintings and will create a custom, Christ-inspired piece of art on canvas for any room of your home or as a unique gift. Furthermore, all pieces will glorify God and, in their own way, give thanks to Him for His blessings. Which brings me to mine; homeschooling mother to two of the sweetest boys, Preston, born May 2007 and Colton, born April 2013. Following my dream allows me to have the flexibility to be with my boys while doing what I love. I have also been assisting, teaching, and designing for Faithful Strokes since September 2011 and was blessed to become the owner in August of 2016. I was the exclusive artist for O Baby! 3D/4D Ultrasound, Spa and Boutique in Murfreesboro, TN when they had a gift shop. Also, I have ready to sell pieces at AlphaPoint Christian Counseling in Smyrna, TN. I have also enjoyed helping support Lakeview Elementary in Mt Juliet, TN, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The United Way, and Pampered Chef Whip Cancer initiative; it was an honor to be asked to help raise funds for those worthy causes. I was also honored to be the artist of the month at JoZoara's Coffee House previously in Murfreesboro, TN in February 2013. Thank you so much for stopping by my site! I hope you enjoy it and will share it with your friends and family. Remember, all pictures show what has been done in the past, but if you can dream it up, I can paint it for you! Use the "Contact Me" form for questions about pricing and products and I'll send you information.
