About Me

My name is Melanie. 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 I joined Outside In. My art plays an essential role in maintaining my mental health and wellbeing. My paintings are both my escape from the world and my strength within it.
