GSENM Artist In Residence


The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument Artist in Residence – Plein Air Program is pleased to announce that Melody Greenlief has been selected as the 2023 Artist in Residence.

Stay tuned for more information about Melody and her residence activities.


Melody Greenlief loves to play with paint. She enjoys the textures and layers that she can create with different watercolor pigments. She wants everyone to have as much enjoyment looking at her paintings as she did painting them, so she paints people and animals that are filled with character and landscapes that are peaceful and harmonious. She says that if you are going to hang something on your wall it should uplift your heart and make you smile.  When Melody is not painting, you will find her chasing the chickens in her backyard, dreaming of travel, telling bad jokes, and laughing with her family.
