About the Artist


  • Melissa Lauren TrittoBased in North Potomac, Maryland, I have painted all my life. My work can be seen in commercial businesses and private homes around the country. I now concentrate on paintings  and my after school Paint Club for kids.
  • I founded MLauren studios in 1991 and have produced paintings and murals; Tromp L’oeil and faux painting of all types. Working  with interior decorators or the home owners themselves, we collaborate to  come up with the perfect idea to fit home spaces and commercial hot spots. 

On a full scholarship to Southern Methodist University, I received a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts and a minor in business. After graduating from SMU, my training continued at Parsons School of Design in New York City.

Along with my husband, we have raised three boys and continue to thrive in the community.


My Philosophy

Every artistic opportunity creates a new challenge and endless possibilities! Turning personal special moments into unforgettable art is a way to bring pleasure to people for years to come. From memorable paintings to fantasy paintings, I thrive on taking any idea and turning it into a one of a kind precious work of art.

I enjoy sharing my love of art and providing lessons for those who want to express themselves and explore the possibilities of painting in a personal and creative setting.
