Cropped Profile

Meet the Artist

Mel has been creating in some way or another her entire life. Raised by her grandparents and mother who were all artists themselves in Upstate New York, she led a life exposed to art in all forms. She began simply with drawing, and soon graduated to painting and pastels. 

In her twenties she moved to the UK. She now is based in Canterbury and has discovered her love for portrait art. With growing popularity she began working on commissions for clients all over the world. She paints and draws everything from pets and wildlife, to people – you name it. She is constantly curious and always trying new things, all while perfecting her existing techniques. 

She has a love for music too, and often performs as a solo musician locally. If you’re ever in Canterbury you might be able to catch her strumming and singing in the town centre or at a local pub. 

So don’t be shy – say hello! And never be afraid to ask questions if you have something in mind you’d like created. She is always open and honest about what she can do!
