Artist. Children’s Book Illustrator. Visual Storyteller.
Hello! I’m Mel … I’m an artist, lifelong learner, and traveller if I have the time and money. I have been passionate about art and drawing for as long as I can remember.
Originally from southern Germany, I spent a decade living and studying in Ireland, Germany, Finland, Iceland, Greece and travelled to many other places. Most of my works have been inspired by those travels and by my friends. Since 2011 I reside in Iceland where I paint, work, hang upside down in the air and explore the country.
More recently my drawings have become an exploration of people, places and things that caught my attention along the way.
