Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist
Melanie Ellery is a painter, creating lively, expressive abstract artwork. After graduating from Illustration at Sheridan, she worked as a graphic designer and art director in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, B.C., before fully shifting her focus to painting. Melanie can be found creating vibrant, contemporary art in her Port Moody studio. Her work is process-driven, colourful and dynamic; she paints intuitively and spontaneously, expressing life, energy and joy. A founding member of the artist collective, ‘13 feet off the ground’’, Melanie has participated in artist residencies in Graniti, Sicily, New Mexico, USA and San José del Cabo, Mexico, as well as local projects in British Columbia.

Samples of my work
“I view my work as a journey–one filled with experimentation, discovery, joy and fulfillment. My intention is to paint intuitively, let the work go where it may and then step in to control its resolution. I aspire to make art that is uplifting and invokes joyfulness."
