Melissa “Melly” Trochez
Melissa “Melly” Trochez started painting because she needed to speak and it’s the only language that allowed her to. She paints about personal experiences recording them as if she was writing in her diary. There is often text to support the work. Trochez is not interested in telling the story exactly how it happened instead giving hints to let the viewer give it their own meaning. She wants people to look at her art and experience a sense of peace and humanity. Trochez wants people to walk away with a passion to evoke change for the better.
