Growing up in the Cotswolds, Melissa, gained at a young age, a love for the beautiful English Countryside. Her passion for flowers, nature’s treasures and vintage finds shaped her love for working still life in oils.
Having studied graphic design, Melissa engaged her newfound skills in successfully designing unique pieces and running her own jewellery business. This enhanced her use of dynamic colour and composition.
All the while, Melissa’s enthusiasm for painting grew from a hobby to a career change. This journey has enabled Melissa to incorporate a greater understanding of the natural world coupled with enhancing her exquisite observational skills in both colour and play on light, to great effect.
Her oil paintings compliment beautiful interiors both contemporary and classic alike.
Now based in the New Forest Melissa’s professional career has taken her work into collections in the UK and abroad. Melissa’s work has been shown at The Mall Galleries - London, St. Barbe - Lymington, Inspired by Nature - Sir Harold Hillier Gardens Romsey and The Cotswolds.
