Hi, I’m Melanie, I’m an artist, living and working in The East Midlands. I have developed my style over several years after completing a Bachelor of Arts in Design at Nottingham Trent University. My work has evolved away from a Digital graphical approach to take on a traditional representational style. I’m inspired by the beauty of nature and have also taken scale as an influence. Working primarily in oils on canvas. I produce artwork that is intricate’ emotive and colourful.

I love to paint, detail and colour have always fascinated me; they both engage and captivate my eye and mind. This I believe is apparent through my brushwork and colour palette. I also use scale, in my portal of a subject matter, as an integral part of the creative approach this enables my work to take on its individuality, balance and vision of the subject.

“The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.”

― Lucian Freud
