Involving locals to help paint murals is a great way of engaging community to create positive change in their local area. It's easy, fun and a great way to meet people of all ages, young and old.
My artwork lends itself to a paint-by-numbers style that is a wonderful addition to any neighborhood and results in a professionally created mural on a wall for years to come.
These types of projects are a unique way of getting locals involved at community events, student school murals, beautification/activation projects or workshops.

Mel is a Perth born multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in the realms of community art, murals, sculpture and illustration. With a Fine Arts degree in Sculpture, her interested in street art emerged through an passion in community activation projects in her local area.
Aesthetically her work deals with the idea of lines and connection. Her cartographic background of creating maps for the environmental industry, piqued her fascination in the way the world can be shaped in absolutes. She uses solid colours and shapes to creatively define an area, an idea or a relationship. Her work reflects the stylisation seen in linocut prints or stain glass windows, while the colour she uses invoke a sense of nostalgia within the surrounding environment.
Her work is simultaneously whimsical and personal and reflect cultural and historic elements of the locations in which they are painted. A celebration of what is locally beautiful and quintessentially Australian
Her clients have included various local schools and community town teams and local governments such as Vincent, Subiaco, Perth, Karratha, Bassendean, Victoria Park, Stirling, Melville, Bayswater, Katanning, Gosnells, Cockburn and Kwinana. Private organisations include the Sheraton Hotel, Buchan Architects, Arup, RAC, Watercorp, Perth Convention Centre, MRA, Vicinity Centres, Perron Group, Artsource, FORM and the Astor Theatre.
