Dancing In The Sun - Melanie Cormack-Hicks

With a passion for art and a fine art painting degree under her belt, Melanie became an art teacher, striving to prove that art is about creativity not ability, and can be enjoyed by all. Whilst painting on the beach at Beer in Devon one summer however, her own artist’s voice was rediscovered, and 20 years later, she left teaching to realise her dream role as an artist. Melanie’s paintings begin as sketches on locations – English woodland, Scottish rivers, and of course the Devon shoreline capturing the feel and sights before her, before returning to the studio to allow each painting to find its own strength, voice and energy. Mel observes that ‘Customers often share deep-set memories and feelings that are evoked by my art – and it’s a privilege to be able to capture these memories forever’. It is a privilege for us to share her work.

Melanie’s contemporary landscapes and seascapes are on permanent display at Marine House Gallery in Beer, Devon, 01297 625257
