Melany was born and raised in sunny South Africa. 


She spent most of her childhood climbing trees, chasing dragonflies and painting.  She developed a love for nature and creating art at very young age.  Not much has changed in that regard, except her kids do the tree climbing now.


Besides spending time with her family, painting in the sun is what she loves to do best.


Her unique and vibrant art has been published and exhibited around the world, and she currently lives in sunny Portugal.


As a member of the SCBWI, she has attended numerous international workshops & conferences. 


She is also the co-founder of Happy Artworks Studio

Please see her ‘News’ page for awards and achievements.
