Melanie sky Webb
Melanie is an emerging multi-disciplinary artist living on Dja Dja Warrung country in Maldon, Victoria, Australia. As the owner of an entertainment travel business that has been hard hit by the impacts of COVID, Melanie has turned to her passion for colour and the arts and rediscovered her love of painting.
Inspiration comes from her surroundings, from the beautiful Australian landscape, to native flora and fauna and her pets. Her paintings often start with photography. She can be often found snapping photos then disappearing into the studio to sketch and paint. She enjoys sharing her new found skills with the community through her workshops.
She is passionate about sustainability and the environment. You will see this reflected in her artwork, printed products and when she runs workshops.
Melanie's preferred mediums are acrylics and watercolours - on paper or canvas and recently on terracotta pots. Her work aims to bring joy, energy and movement through the use of bold modern colours. Her work typically incorporates bright pops of colour and aims to achieve interesting texture and gradients.
