Melissa lives in a lovely rural setting in a farm house surrounded by vibrant landscapes. Her studio is framed by windows looking out onto dazzling golden fields, towering pine trees and a natural pond. 

Melissa paints with and around her twin girls and in between living "life". Melissa creates her own botanical inks from foraged plants and works with watercolours and acrylics. Melissa’s abstract landscapes reflect the colours of the seasons, the lines of the hills surrounding her studio and the trees dotting the horizon.
