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 of this work: These works were initiated plein-air, facing south, on the deck which overlooks our wetlands area. I was taking in the surrounds, jotting notes (like shorthand) and trying to take in this wonderland. I later pinned the works to my studio wall and responded to the initial drawing by layering up with oil paints, and letting the paint, colour relations, and resulting surprises dictate my next moves.”
