The interesting thing about his interview, it that melissa always taught of herself as a noncreative person, always thinking that her art wasn't good enough when compared to other's people art.

Then through a series of events, she discovered her artistic abilities. She was so successful at her craft, that she made a business out of her art. Her business grew so much that she didn't have time to do art for art's sake.

At a given moment, she decided that she needed a sandbox to create art without a commercial purpose, she needed to create a space where she could just create art just to have fun and to let her creativity flow, and thus the concept of the creative sandbox was born.
