Melanie Cambridge


Melanie's work is based on light and colour. She loves to capture the fleeting effect of light, especially where it sparkles on water. In order to achieve this, she paints on location all year round, visiting the coastline during the winter months and using her boat on the River Wey as a second studio during the summer. As a tutor, Melanie offers demonstrations and workshops to art groups as well as painting holidays for individuals. She has written four art instruction books so far, all published by HarperCollins.
