Melissa McClain : Following Your Soul’s Calling

In this episode, we talk about leaving behind a successful corporate career to follow your souls calling with my guest, Melissa McClain.

Guest Bio:

Melissa is an art photographer currently living in the Pacific Northwest. She grew up near Dallas, TX and as a child loved art classes and drawing. Over the years as art programs in schools began to diminish, she strayed from her love of creativity and color. After graduating from college she began working in Crisis Management, eventually receiving a Master’s Degree in the field and becoming a leader in the area of Survivor and Family Assistance. While traveling the world working with clients and responding to mass fatality events, photography became her self-care outlet and rekindled her passion for creativity and color.

Today she finds inspiration in travels across Europe and the Pacific Northwest. From sunsets and sunrises to her unique images from the bottoms of boats, Melissa has a passion for color and her images have an abstract, painterly quality about them. She has exhibited her photography in group exhibitions around New York City and Seattle, her first show winning Best Of Show for her abstract from the Water Colors Collection. Recent accomplishments include a public art display in King County. Public collection of her work includes Weill Cornell Medical Center. Melissa's dream is to take her photography “off the walls” and expand her images to textiles and home and fashion designs.
