Illustrator and Silk-screen Artist
Melissa is a London based illustrator and screenprinter creating vibrant artworks with a silk-screen print aesthetic. Influenced by analogue processes, Melissa collages together photographs and drawings to create illustrations that have a tactile quality.
A lover of travel, Melissa often creates work about the places she has been (or would like to go to). Bringing her images to life with a narrative is an important part of Melissa’s process and inspiration for this is found by researching local history, wildlife or looking to the architecture and urban details of a location.
Melissa is also the co-founder of Underway Studio, an illustration and printmaking collective based in Brixton. She collaborates with the members of Underway Studio on limited edition prints alongside making her own work.
I love hearing about new project ideas and opportunities for collaboration. If you would like to work with me, discuss an idea for a project or feature my work, please contact me via email on:
What Clients Say About Working With Me
” CW+ commissioned Melissa to produce a series of site-specific artworks for Nell Gwynne Ward, the Stroke and Neurology rehabilitation ward at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. She created a bespoke series of corridor wall graphics that encompass the entire ward. It has been a pleasure to work with Melissa on the commission. We are thrilled with the impactful design which will enhance the ward environment and the experience for all those who visit.” – Trystan Hawkins, Arts Director at CW+
” Over the course of 6 months, Melissa created a series of 48 unique collage designs for our client, capturing scenes and landscapes from a broad range of regions within the British Isles. Melissa responded to the brief in a thoughtful, meticulous and novel way. SMC Design and our client are delighted with the finished pieces, they create a beautiful narrative within the long corridor spaces, and different elements and hidden motifs reveal themselves over time. The pieces will be encouraging conversation with passengers for years to come.” – Jennie Drummond, SMC Design
