Melanie’s paintings are “bright, exuberant and passionate, rooted in the landscape of west Cornwall and yet suggestive of something deeper. Her brushwork is bold and expressive, brave too: Melanie is not an artist who holds back. She embraces the process of painting with gusto and her finished work, whether in oils, gouache or mixed media, is unlike anything else in the contemporary Cornish art scene, somehow kaleidoscopic, spontaneous and reflective all at once.”
