Melissa Simmonds Art - video

So excited to work on this video with Mel Simmonds! We had a fantastic time creating this. I especially enjoyed watching (while filming) the process and seeing a painting emerge from a blank canvas. Truly inspiring words and insights into her life as an artist are also worth a listen. If you're in the Inverell area, do yourself a favour and call into the gallery and gift shop. There is a fantastic range of eclectic gift and homewares available, including Mel Simmonds original artwork and prints. And if you're lucky, you may see Mel creating a painting as her studio is right there in the shop. Mel, you're an amazingly, talented artist and great friend! Looking forward to working with you again!
