Welcome to Mel’s Masai Mara

Hand painted pots with African animals and scenes

Hello and welcome to my website. I am Mel (Melanie) and I am from Port Elizabeth in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province. I grew up on a farm enjoying all that the wonderful African bushveld had to offer an adventurous and inquisitive kid. 

The inspiration and passion for my art is drawn from my love of African animals and skies that came with me from Africa.

I moved to the UK in 1998 and settled in Plymouth in 2001.

I hope you enjoy browsing my art. If you would like enquire or purchase please get in touch Click Here
