Hi I'm Melly Lee. This is my personal blog to hold myself accountable in becoming a stronger visual artist + to prove to my friends back home that I haven't died yet.


“ When you’re truly passionate about an idea and also believe in yourself and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you can do it — whatever ‘it’ is — it shows. And, then people want to invest in you, take a risk on you. Then, suddenly, you’re doing the once-‘impossible’ thing, immersed in it, feeding on the high-stakes energy, loving it because you’re doing what you love to do. ”

“ Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering. ”

“ Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems; wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges; wish for more wisdom. ”
