ARTIST BIO

Mellissa was born in England in the 1960s and as a child emigrated to Australia with her family. She has studied & practiced printmaking and painting continuously since the mid 90s and is a recipient of many prizes and awards. Her Artwork is part of many private and public collections around the world.





Living in rural Sydney overlooking the Hawkesbury River, Mellissa’s work ranges between vibrant interpretations of her local landscape to intricate wood & linocuts. Her combination of quirkiness and calm blend to create works with a strong spiritual base.





 "It is easy to be captivated by the powerful immediacy and extraordinary colour emerging from Mellissa’s paintings on a purely aesthetic level. They are visually spectacular and invite the viewer to search for further harmony and empathy with the natural landscape. She brings the natural landscape and birds of Australia to life with her original, spontaneous and vibrant paintings.." Robyn Williams, Purple Noon Gallery NSW
