Vermont Artist Mylissa Kowalski Davis. Landscape and Wildlife Painter

My love for art has always held a strong connection with the outdoors, and nature has been a

constant inspiration in my work. Painting allows me to relate more deeply with the outdoor

world, and I hope to share this connection with those who view my work.


My early drawings started out in pencil and charcoal, but I would later utilize soft pastels. The

pure pigments and softness of pastels along with the speed at which I could lay down color were

what ignited my love for this medium.

In 2006 I received a Bachelors of Art in Medical Illustration from Rochester Institute of

Technology. Medical Illustration is a truly fascinating profession. It combines a passion for art

with a love for science. It requires great attention to detail and exactness. While focusing more on

human anatomy in art, it teaches important skills that can be used in any type of drawing.


After college I moved to Seattle, WA. There my subject matter gradually moved away from

Medical Illustration and turned once again to nature. I spent eight years in Washington

immersing myself in my art as well as the beautiful wildlife and scenery of the area.


In the spring of 2015, my husband and I relocated to Underhill, Vermont. My paintings

encompass a wide range of subjects such as landscapes, wildlife, and animal portraits. Nature

continues to inspire my art. I have begun to focus on plein air painting. I also gradually moved

away from pastels and began using acrylics. No matter the subject or medium, the common

thread in all my artwork is my intention to portray beauty and meaning in the subtleties that

surround us.

Georgia is a bold and elegant font that is highly readable, even on smaller screens. So it’s ideal for mobile.
