Melanie Cambridge was born in 1963 and has been painting full time for over 30 years. She still gets a “buzz” when working outside in changing light. For her, painting is about responding to the light and the passion she feels when outdoors. The English coastline and North Downs near to her home are favourite subjects as both evoke a sense of freedom and space.
In her studio, she creates larger scale works, painting big skies over expansive landscapes or coastlines. Lots of texture and layers of oil colour help her create a sense of space, especially in the sky.
Melanie’s work can be found in private collections in the UK and the USA as well as within the public collection of Signet Hotels Group.
Over recent years, Melanie has written four art instruction books, three for oil painters and a beginners book on acrylics. Passionate about good materials, she developed her own range of artist brushes for both oil and watercolour painters.
