Biography
Translation in progress

Melanie Ellery is a contemporary artist based in Vancouver Canada. Her colourful abstract paintings emanate movement and dynamism. She works spontaneously and allows the work to develop organically while utilizing techniques of glazes, drips and mark-making. Melanie graduated from Sheridan College where she studied Illustration, majoring in Advertising and she has worked as both a graphic designer and art director.

A member of CARFAC and the Canadian Federation of Artists, Melanie Ellery is keen on supporting other women artists. She writes a weekly feature on Instagram, she calls '#ArtCrushWomen', showcasing and promoting women artists. She is also a founding member of the all-women art collective, '13 feet off the ground' who participated in a group artist residency in Sicily in the Fall of 2017.

“I view my work as a journey filled with experimentation, discovery, joy and fulfillment. However, it doesn't come without challenges and it's this that drives me forward. Painting is such a rewarding, sometimes torturous endeavor– and I love the process. My intention is to paint intuitively, let the work go where it may and then know when to step in and control its resolution.

?

My inspiration comes from the contradictions of living in a technology-based society – subjected to constant onslaught of news and media – versus the pursuit of escapism, beauty and solace that only nature (and art) can provide. I aspire to make art that is uplifting and invokes a feeling of joyfulness."
