About The Artist
Mellissa was born in England and as a child emigrated to Australia with her family. Having lived in Melbourne, Canberra, Townsville, and Darwin, she now lives in rural Sydney overlooking the Hawkesbury River.
Since the 90’s she has continuously studied and practised painting and printmaking honing her art to vibrant optimistic harmony with the natural landscape.
The recipient of many Australian art prizes, Mellissa’s style is distinctive with her electric palette and layered application of brush strokes. Mellissa’s paintings have evolved into her “macropointilist” style celebrating the shape, colour and brushstroke of contemporary impressionism. These characteristics come together presenting unique representations sought after by both Australian and international collectors alike.
Be captivated by the powerful immediacy and extraordinary colour emerging from Mellissa’s paintings. They are visually spectacular and invite the viewer to search for further harmony and empathy with the natural landscape.
An Associate of the Royal Art Society of NSW, Mellissa is also a fine art tutor and travels to teach art enrichment workshops around the world.
“The process of painting is joy for me. Florals and landscapes are all around us and with them I never have to struggle for inspiration. I invite the viewer into my world to see contemporary scenes in rich optical mixes of brushstroke and hue.”
