A Studio in the Sky
I wanted to start off with a little about myself. My name is Melissa Mariano. I am the founder, sole employee, and owner of Tree Top Studio. I am an artist exploring as many different avenues to creative expression as I can. My goal is to create an Art Production Company that focuses on the exploration and integration of many different creative mediums to give the viewer a more powerful and immersive experience. My primary focus now is to produce my own original music tracks and music videos.
Three Top Studio is located in the beautiful woodland town of Carlisle, MA. Carlisle is the perfect place to find a quite space in nature, and also have a strong sense community.
Through the combination of multiple mediums, I hope to guide my audience in finding their sense of self-worth. Art is a journey that is closely related to the realities of humanity- the ability of suffering to be turned into a greater capacity to love. I allow my intuition to guide my work to show a spirit and a voice that cannot be captured in one medium alone. By observing the world around me, I am able to create paintings, sculptures, and various music productions that show how we, as humans, can grow and learn. As my own views have grown, so has my art to reflect upon my own experiences and careful observations of the world.
My paintings and sculptures often focus on a perception of the world as viewed through fantasy settings. I want to provide my audience with a sense of solitude in viewing the world through my eyes. I create music video sets as well as produce music in hopes that my passion will become my career. My work is eclectic and reflective which gives it a unique quality that I hope my audience will be able to take an interest in and relate to. The main purpose of creating art is to allow viewers and listeners to not only see or hear my art, but to be immersed in a new version of the world they are surrounded by every day.
