Melissa Cooke

Melissa Cooke  graduated in 2008 with a Masters in Fine Arts  from the University of Wisconsin. She creates what can only be referred to as graphite paintings, as she states:  “I create my work by applying thin layers of powdered graphite to paper with a dry brush. Illusion dissolves into brushwork and the honesty of the material.”

Melissa Cooke has a great talent, I wish i could draw like her. Her work is so realistic and would actually appear as a photographic piece at first glance. I love the reality of her photos and how people really can be in life. Her images are edgy and you tend to get drawn into them.
