About Melanie Torteli
Melanie’s love of aesthetics came at a very early age from growing up in an environment steeped in European artistry. Born in Hungary, she moved to the United States as a young child. She later pursued her passion formally and became one of many artists in her family. She was granted a triple scholarship to the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Art in portraiture and later studied Graphic Design. After graduating, she pursued a career in NYC and gained noteworthy positions in design and trend forecasting at a several fortune 100 and 500 companies. She later wanted to move away from the hustle and bustle of NYC to fulfill a lifelong dream to live down south–in beautiful Georgia. In this transition, it made perfect sense to bring her precise hand eye coordination and background in drawing the human face to a field where she could work with clients one-on-one and it immediately became a passion for her. She received her training from the world-renowned PhiBrows Academy. Her and her husband started a family and now have two young daughters, Luca & Lana, and their rescue dog named Hudson.
