Reverse Oil Paintings by Melanie Hodge

I am an American-born, British-based artist living in West Sussex. I paint in oils on glass in a reverse technique I was introduced to while living in Croatia. I balance my art practice with caring for my two children, one of whom has Autism. My work fits within naïve, outsider, and folk art traditions. I became a member of the Association of British Naïve Artists in 2016 and in 2018 joined Outside In. My art plays an essential role in maintaining my mental wellbeing, it is both my escape from the world and my strength within it.
