I would like to take a moment and introduce myself to you.
 
My name is Melanie Miera. I am a 42 yr. old single mother of four incredible children. That in and of itself says volumes, but I say it here because my children were the motivating factor in my life that led to the creation of this painting business. Without the need to take care of them…I would never have had the courage or motivation necessary to take on such a large endeavor.
 
I am also the daughter of the WORLDS GREATEST PARENTS. I am blessed to live less than a mile away from them, and therefore I get to see them each and every day. They had seven children, of which I am the “middle” one. I have one sister, and five brothers….and as the hands of time have passed we have added to the family 30 grandchildren to that mix. So I am surrounded and supported by some of the greatest people occupying this planet at this point in history. 😉
 
I am also a friend to some pretty wonderful people. I constantly find myself surrounded by loving and supportive friends who seem to know my needs before I even have to express them.
 
I am an artist. That is my passion. That is what feeds my soul.
 
In 2006, my step-son, Victor, whom this site is named for, left us to go back and be with his Father in Heaven. He was my Humpty Dumpty. He was not my child by birth. He had another mother, but he was my son in every way that mattered. He came to live with us full-time when he was 9. He left us when he was 14. He was one of my greatest teachers. I miss him every second, of every minute of every hour of every day, but I know that some day we will be together again. I was not able to “put all his pieces back together again” but with each new project I create, my heart is mending. I am so blessed to have the privilege of sharing my journey with each and every one of you…and for the lucky ones, I even get to leave my “magic” behind for them to enjoy in their homes and businesses for years to come.
My  children are the treasures of my heart. 
 
The other thing in my life that defines me is my faith. I have endured many challenges in life and I am deeply grateful for each and every one of them, because I have the knowledge that life always works out. I have complete and total faith in my Father in Heaven and his timing in my life. And that allows me to be virtually FEARLESS…and what a wonderful way to live life.
I am a little bit like a small tornado when I arrive, but in my path I am determined to leave the world more beautiful, more kind, and more courageous than I found it. So when my tornado arrives, it leaves beauty and happiness not sadness and destruction in its path.
 
Thanks for taking the time to get better acquainted with me today. If you would like to contact me about a painting job, leave your email address on the site and I will be in touch with you shortly.
 
Till then, enjoy some magical moments in your life.
Melanie 😉
