About Me

I’m Melik (pr. like Tom Sellick) and I am a portrait artist living in Los Angeles, CA.  Art has been a key part of my life since I was a child and my technique is a result of a lifetime of study, experimentation, and play.  I love animals, I love kids, and I love painting…so this is my dream job!

I’ve also worked as an animator, an actor, and a high stakes wall street investment broker (I’m lying).  When I’m not painting a cute kid, an adorable household pet, or a beloved pop icon from the past, I enjoy watching old movies, playing ragtime guitar, and restoring my 1987 Honda Civic Wagon.
