Oodles of Doodles!

Oodles of Doodles!

Baby steps can take you further than you realize.”
— Mel Shields


Mel has doodled her way from childhood into adulthood. Her passion for the arts took her to the mountains of North Carolina where she got her Graphic Arts degree at Appalachian State University.

There, she was exposed to the mixture of technology and the arts which ultimately set the foundation for her current career in product design.

Today, she leads a team of designers at Skookum, a custom technology firm in Charlotte. After hours she continues to pursue more classical forms of art which can be found on her Instagram.

Keep an eye out for her work in the next few months as she explores how to bring motion into her illustration work!
