Today we’d like to introduce you to Melisa Caprio.
Melisa (www.melisacaprio.com) is an inspiring and experienced photographer. She received a fine art degree from Florida International University. She was one of the selected few asked to study with renowned curator and historian, John Szarkowski, Director of Photography at New York’s Museum of Modern Art- MOMA (1962-1991). She owned and operated a Fine Art Photography Gallery in Hollywood, Florida for three years.
She was personally asked to become the staff photographer for Dolphin Human Therapy by the president and founder where she worked for seven years photographing handicapped children receiving therapy with dolphins. She has gleamed powerful insights from the dolphins and children. Her work from Dolphin Human Therapy has been published extensively throughout Europe.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
Melisa Caprio, author, photographer and creator of Postcards to the Universe™ A Global Movement for Manifestation, is inviting people from around the world to participate in this movement. By using photography, art, personal wishes and desires and sending them out to the Universe via a postcard. She is photographing the image, the art and handwritten desire. This book is a beautiful, visual representation of people creating and manifesting their greatest desires.

How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
I define success as perseverance, in realizing part of success is failure. There may be many failures before you reach that point where you want to be. You have to allow yourself that learning curve. I also believe as an artist you make art for yourself, not for other people. If you are living your creative life to please others you will be disappointed. The right people will find you when you create and contribute your gifts to the world.
That is what my project is about, Manifestation – you will manifest the right people, circumstance, and abundance when you are sharing your gifts. People become attracted to you like a magnet. Love your life and love who you are.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
