The incredibly talented Melissa Gullatte is the creative force behind Gracefully Made Art. Creating has always been apart of her for as long as she can remember. She would always have her sketchbook nearby, and she would find inspiration from the world around her. She loved her art classes in school, and one thing led to another and Melissa majored in Studio Art and Business at Auburn University. The courses she took at Auburn really opened her eyes to different mediums of art and different ways of creating art that she wasn't exposed to prior to attending college.
After years of convincing from various friends and satisfied customers, Melissa took the leap and created an Etsy shop for her business. She's constantly thinking about what she will create next because creating is such a big part of her life, and it's what makes her who she is. She incorporates God's Word into most of her creations. She stated that, "getting to immerse myself in a Bible verse for a living is incredible, and I'm so thankful this is what I get to do."
All of Melissa's creations are truly spectacular works art. Her love for art and creating definitely translates to all of her pieces. We had the privilege of partnering with Melissa for Bustle's 3rd Anniversary VIP Bride giveaway. She donated the most beautiful hand painted calligraphy wedding hangers. Melissa has such a kind and joyful spirit, and we absolutely love all of her work. This chick is so talented!
