Mel’s work incorporates texture and layering within her mixed media work through the use of combining drawing, collage, paper cutting, and digital applications. Focusing on humour, her work invokes playfulness, silliness and the unexpected which has aided in Mel’s teaching roles at Central Saint Martins, Ravensbourne, and numerous workshops.
