About Mel

Mel's Fine Art painting degree from Cheltenham in the mid 90’s allowed her to find a new artistic voice. Following this, she spent twenty years teaching secondary school pupils and just one year ago decided to become a full time professional artist. Her first solo show at Chapel Arts in Cheltenham launched her new career. She is exhibiting at ‘The Other Art Fair’ a Saatchi affiliated show in Bristol this July. She is full of energy and enthusiasm for her new audience of students and is sharing her creative process.
