Meet the Creator

Mel is a Perth born multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in the realms of community art, murals, sculpture and illustration. Aesthetically her work deals with the idea of lines and connection. Her cartographic background of creating maps for the environmental industry, piqued her fascination in the way the world can be shaped in absolutes. She uses solid colours and shapes to creatively define an area, an idea or a relationship. Her work reflects the stylisation seen in linocut prints or stain glass windows, while the colour she uses invoke a sense of nostalgia within the surrounding environment.

Her work is simultaneously whimsical and personal and reflect cultural and historic elements of the locations in which they are painted. A celebration of what is locally beautiful and quintessentially Australian.
