Mel left his Mechanical Engineering job to fulfil his lifelong dream of becoming an artist. Years of self study and attending various workshops have helped him to realize his expectations. He lives in Florida in the winter and Maine in the summer. His works include Landscapes, Seascapes, and Architectural Elements found along the sea and elsewhere. Mel is married to Janice McCann Zeoli and they travel with their two cats Amanda and Amelia across the United States in search of the beauty reflected in his work.
