Melissa’s  work speaks of a life lived on the land, an intimate connection with both the wild and tamed landscapes in her close daily interactions of working on a farm and revegetating native habitat. Titles often allude to the narrative experience of these spaces and provide some insight into the thought process behind the art.

Says Melissa: “My process begins with an immersion in the landscape; jotting notes; scribbling responses; and creating a shorthand code for the natural environment. I am drawn to the rich dichotomy of both coastal and inland country and my work often sits between these 2 worlds. Painting for me is a sensory experience, allowing the work to develop of its own accord is paramount to the process; through mark-making, colour play, and integrity to materials and surface. Landscape becomes the vehicle for self-expression.”
