About Mellissa Read-Devine
Mellissa was born in England and as a child emigrated to Australia with her family. Having lived in Melbourne, Canberra, Townsville, and Darwin, she now lives locally by the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney.
Since the 90’s she has continuously studied and practised painting and printmaking honing her art to vibrant optimistic harmony with the natural landscape.
The recipient of many Australian art prizes, Mellissa’s style is distinctive with her electric palette and layered application of brush strokes. Mellissa’s paintings have evolved into her “Macropointilist” style celebrating the shape, colour and brushstroke of contemporary impressionism. These characteristics come together presenting unique representations sought after by both Australian and international collectors alike.
A Fellow of the Royal Art Society of NSW, Mellissa is also a fine art tutor and travels to teach art enrichment workshops around the world.
