About

Picture 3
Fusing the digital and the organic, the spiritual and the make believe. Painterly hand drawn imagery, photography and digitally created collages, all remaining deeply rooted to nature.
My name is Melissa Williams, and I am a full time freelance artist and graphic designer from beach side Carrum,
with a love for detailed organic illustration and ornamentation.
I have travelled the world for some time, becoming more and more inspired by the amount of beautiful art
different countries have to offer.
Textiles and tapestries play a big role in what I do, as well as music, mindfulness and the eternal supply of
intricate features found in the botanical.
My designs are all mixed media and use a combination of hand drawn and painted motifs, photography, collage, digital creation, and UV printing on cotton canvas and waterproof vinyl.
Please take the time to look at some of my work, and feel free to contact me for any freelance opportunities or questions you may have.
