Mellissa was born in England in the 1960s and as a child emigrated to Australia with her family. She has studied & practiced printmaking and painting continuously since the mid ‘90s and is a recipient of many prizes and awards. Her sought after works are part of many private and public collections around the world.
Living in rural Sydney alongside the Hawkesbury River, Mellissa’s paintings have evolved into her “macropointilist” style celebrating the shape, colour and brushstroke of contemporary impressionism.
Mellissa is an Associate of the Royal Art Society NSW and is a regular tutor at the RAS Art School.
