Melanie Delgado was born and raised in Morris County, NJ. She currently resides in the Hudson Valley region of NY with her husband Marc Delgado & their daughter Mary where she has been focusing on her abstract oil paintings. From spray paint to oil sticks, Melanie uses playfulness, a child-like vision and a heavy dose of street art to bring her voice to the canvas, door, window or piece of wood. Her background has been in the field of education ranging from high school to preschool. She instructs young artists at the Woodstock School of Art. Delgado is curious about the stories behind the dilapidated fence, the overgrown pines and what comes next.
