About + Social

Hi – I’m Melissa McClanahan and Liminal Works is the banner that I place my art, illustration and other creative ephemera under.

I grew up in a small town in Ohio, where there are more trees and open sky than people. There I sharpened my love of the imaginary and unseen, reading fantasy novels, playing video games and drawing, A LOT.

I received my BFA at the Art Academy of Cincinnati with an emphasis in Illustration. I am inspired by the human form, nature, personal symbolism and mythology.  Currently I participate in local galleries, and accept private commissions.

When I’m not painting or drawing, I can be found harassing my husband, playing visual novels, doing yoga, or out on a run.
