Melody Christenen, Cody
Born and raised in Wyoming, I went to Northwest College and while at the University of Wyoming I met my husband. We moved around doing road construction until settling down in Cody to raise a family. We love the outdoors, camping, hiking, hunting and fishing. My landscapes are inspired by this beautiful state, and the people and wildlife are exciting to paint and draw. I work in watercolor, graphite, acrylic, color pencil and recently a combination of graphite/color pencil on velum. It's hard to limit myself to one medium, I've even done gunpowder on wood and enjoy crafting. I have a group of close friends that gather once a week to be creative and share inspiration. I show my work at Cody Country Art League and you can see my work on Facebook at Melody Christensen's Artwork.
