My Name is Melissa Addison and I was born and raised in Kansas (Basehor, Tonganoxie and Valley Falls). I lived in Colorado (Estes Park) from 1993-1997 and returned in 2012.

I have passion for horses that came from being raised on a small ranch with Appaloosas, Miniature Horses and Quarter Horses. I learned to ride bareback, western, english and drive harness horses. I have owned and ridden several other breeds of horses including Tennessee Walking Horses, Morgans, Arabians and other breeds. I was also raised around dog showing and have owned several wonderful dogs and a few cats over my lifetime.

I became interested in models horse showing and painting around 1985, though I had several models and a large collection of horse figurines before then. I have live and photo shown for several years.

I have an interest in all colors but seem to paint a lot more bays than anything. I do fantasy horses, crafts, dolls, medallions, create websites, sing, and volunteer along with working full time at the local hospital.
