Hello,

a bit about me:

My name is Melanie Merlo and my pronouns are she/her.  I was born and raised in the almond orchards of Chico, CA and currently reside there, as well. I recently completed the single subject credential program in visual art through the University of California, Chico. I enjoy traveling, visiting museums, reading, riding my bicycle through all of Bidwell Park, cooking good food, frequenting the farmer's markets, and spending quality time with family and friends.
