2017 Windsor Fair's Poster
Contest Winner "Melissa Gonnella"

2016 Windsor Fair’s Poster Contest Winner “Melissa Gonnella”  I'm a graphic artist and former toy designer living in Waterville with my husband and daughter. I grew up in New York City, where being homeschooled gave me plenty of time to draw for fun. As I got older I decided to pursue art as a career and study illustration at the School of Visual Arts, before eventually marrying and moving to Maine. I have always felt my true strength was drawing, which is why I chose to start with an ink drawing before adding paint to my poster entry, and which allowed me to incorporate a lot of detail. I'd like to thank the Windsor Fair board for choosing my work, as well as my husband and all the friends and family that encouraged me to enter. 
Thank-you to all who participated. The artwork submitted was very good and made our decision very difficult. Keep those creative juices flowing ,your talent is amazing to me and the trustees. Thanks again,Karen Foster
