About the Artist: Melinda Puho
Melinda was born in the ancient land of Transylvania (Romania), in the Carpathian mountains. Since her childhood, she felt a deep spiritual connection with the astonishing beauty of the natural world that surrounded her. She started drawing from the moment she held a pencil in her hands and started playing the piano at the age of 5. She always felt much more mature than her age and her wish for artistic expression and for seeking the Truth was her companion even after her parents moved her to Hungary when she was 11, after the revolution that brought an end to the 42 years of communist rule in Romania. These early hardships helped her understood that her life and talents have a purpose, and her aim became to elevate the consciousness of the other souls who resonate with her art and music. Artist Bio In college, she met her creative partner, who shared a very similar view of the world and a very close artistic mindset. They decided to immigrate to the US to fulfill their childhood dreams of sharing with the world their unique creative vision. After going through the challenges in their new country, they started their business 'WizArts' in 2016, selling their hand-sculpted, one-of-a-kind art jewelry. Since 2017 WizArts has been exhibiting at various juried art shows throughout California. Melinda is entirely self-taught through experimentation and the development of her own unique techniques, including clay appliqué using her handmade glow-in-the-dark polymer clay. She believes that dreams shape our reality and art is what elevates the consciousness into new, unknown dimensions. For her, Art is the most personal, most intimate form of self-expression that is the only way to touch the soul of the other person in a way that you cannot do otherwise in this material world.
