Bio: Missy grew up on an island in the serene waters of the Niagara River, four nautical miles south of the magnificent Niagara Falls. She fell in love with art at a young age whilst sitting for a portrait. Missy’s long had ambition to become a portrait painter herself, a dream recently dashed by the ubiquitous selfie function on the iPhone camera. Missy translated her love of art into a love/hate of design at Binghamton University. Missy plies her trade at a very high level. Just ask the painting elephant who appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman (she designed that elephant's painter’s smock). Missy enjoys comedy, and long walks on the beach with comedians. Perhaps her biggest claim to future fame is her eggplant parmesan, which would no doubt win if she were to enter an eggplant parmesan competition.
