Canadian artist Melissa Jean explores the Canadian Landscape… armed with her travel easel, camera and sketchbook, she discovers new inspiration with a sense of curiosity and playfulness that is evident in her work. Drawn towards water especially, she recreates the movement and slow dance of water on canvas.
Based in the Lake of the Woods region of Northwestern Ontario, as well as Manitoba (winter studio), Melissa’s work transports the viewer to the lake on a warm summer’s evening, canoeing on calm waters, or dancing in the rain…. from walking along the beach and skipping stones, to the warmth of a campfire on a starry night.
Memories and magic moments are captured forever in textured paint and vivid colour on canvas.
Her work can be found in galleries across Canada, and private and corporate collections worldwide.
