Melaney’s paintings evolve from a palette of rich colour, an interest in texture, and a uniquely personal touch.
Residing on the west shores of Lake Winnipeg, she draws inspiration from rock strewn shore lines, open prairie landscapes and winding forest trails. Her personal experiences, and her deep admiration for the beauty of her surroundings strongly influences her work.
Embracing diversity as a strength, her push for constant experimentation and an open mind allows her to explore endless subjects within the mediums of watercolour, multimedia and encaustic.
With an ongoing drive to create and express, Melaney continues to paint, teach and exhibit her work on a regular basis.
