Melanie Stokes Artist:
hello and welcome to my website of original art, prints, cards and gifts.
I was born in London, raised in Scotland, studied and have worked in Switzerland, France, Edinburgh, Dundee, Cornwall and London. I have an MA in Fine Art Painting from Chelsea College of Art.
I live, and paint, in the historic maritime town of Penzance.
I adore living here so close to the sea whose movement and presence permeates every unfolding hour. I love the rhythms of activity around the harbour, the tide-bound crossings of ships and sailboats. As the granite rises from the sea and leads to starkly beautiful moorland, valleys and ancient tracks I find all of this inspiring and deeply nourishing – as do my two dogs, Woody and Truffle!.
