“In the early morning I walk my dogs locally and look for the small seasonal shifts, thinking about the quiet beauty in the everyday and
particularly in the natural commonplace things, rarely celebrated. My paintings are inspired by what I see around me: the form of a tree; the long lines of twining stems; the intricate lines of birds in flight. Often I am reminded of a poem or a piece of music and revisit an idea resonating there. References include Hardy’s ‘The Darkling Thrush’, Yeats’ ‘He wishes for the cloths of Heaven’, de la Mare’s ‘Silver’, Hahn’s ‘Exquisite Hour’, Schumann's ‘Kinderszenen’. Working from projections of photographs I’ve taken, I trace the lines loosely with a fine square ended brush, and the marks build up the complicated patterns of the whole. Using traditional materials – oil, gold leaf, charcoal, gesso – my work draws attention to these fleeting moments and underscores their value.”

Melanie grew up in the Lincolnshire fens, spending time in Italy in between studying Florentine Renaissance Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London (BA Hons. and MA) followed by MA Fine Art (Painting) at Cheltenham & Gloucester College of H.E. After a series of teaching posts and artist residencies, she relocated from London to Cambridgeshire.

Melanie has exhibited widely in solo and group shows across the UK and work is held in corporate and private collections worldwide, most recently commissioned by The Dorchester, London, as one of six British artists selected to create a painting for their new Artists’ Bar. Her work has also been selected for significant juried exhibitions including the John Moores Painting Prize, ING Discerning Eye, and the National Open Art Exhibition.
