Melanie Aleman, Owner, CEO and Executive Creative Designer

Author, Illustrator, Owner, CEO, and Executive Creative Designer of MMA Illustrations.
Melanie attended the Academy of Art University San Francisco for her B.A. in Illustration and Multi-Media Design. Determined to show the world her talents in the competitive industry, she created her own path and became an author and illustrator for children's books. She even created her own book, Adventures of Flash and Fidget and the Mysterious Slime App. Captivating the masses with her creations, requests for her unique custom designs became highly in demand. Discovering the needs for her services, she became familiar with the trade and decided to go into business for herself. This is when MMA Illustrations was born.
