Twenty-four year old artist, Melissa Lyn was born in Kingston, Jamaica. She is a recent graduate of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts in Jamaica where she pursued an Associates Degree in Fine Arts. Previously, Melissa has worked predominantly in the field of ceramics, incorporating illustration concepts and techniques in her ceramic sculptures.
“Now my main focus is illustration…fan arts and portraits,” the Jamaican artist told The Global West Indian. “I would like to achieve a higher level of aesthetic by transforming my fan art and commissioned portraits into 3D realistic clay sculptures. That is the latest project I’m working on now.”
Last year, the West Indian native blessed us with some of the dopest illustrations showcasing a special part of Jamaican culture – Dance Hall.

Ridiculously talented, Melissa Lyn is amazing at capturing all forms of movements in her illustrations. Take a look at her recent piece,”The Art of Pole Dancing”.
