About

Mel is a South African born, visual artist,

With a multi-disciplinary approach, Mel combines her diverse experience in conceptual art, motion, and fine art, with a particular emphasis on printmaking, collage, and photography techniques to reframe reality.

Mel laid the foundation of her creative journey by studying BA Fine Arts at the University of Cape Town, establishing a solid foundation for her artistic expression. 

Currently based in London, Mel thrives in the vibrant atmosphere of Kew Print Studios, where she actively engages as a member of this creative community.

Fine Artist and Photographer

As a visual artist, I specialise in creating bespoke contemporary pieces for homes and businesses, offering a diverse range of services. This includes editioned original prints and archival pigment prints, each crafted with meticulous attention to detail.

I deliver bespoke pieces that help bring the gallery to your home, without even having to leave the comfort of your living room.

It starts with a simple chat and we take it from there.

In addition, I am passionate about collaborative projects and love working alongside other artists. I believe that collaboration not only fuels creativity but also brings fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to the forefront.

If you’re looking to embark on a collaborative artistic venture, I am eager to join forces and create something truly remarkable together. 

Have you ever felt overwhelmed or intimidated about buying original art? You know you like it, but not sure where to start – It’s like being given an enormous wine list in a restaurant, you love wine but which one to choose?

In that space you have a sommelier to help you – you describe what you like and the sommelier matches your preferences to the right wine for you.

Well I’m here to do the same for your in the art world…..

I am Mel and I'm an art sommelier.
