As a teacher, Doug always taught his students how important it was for them to be thoroughly engaged in the wonders of art—as creators, observers and patrons. 

Few individuals possess a deeper love for the natural beauty of northern lower Michigan than artist Doug Melvin. 

About the Artist

Doug spent many years as a member of the faculty of North Central Michigan College, where he was initially hired to develop the now highly regarded art department. 

As an artist, he continues to bring that sense of engagement and wonder to his own work.
