Melanie Eade was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand.
Her tertiary background included a course in Visual Communication at Wellington Polytechnic; Fine Arts at Ilam, Christchurch and she completed an Interior Design course in Sydney.
Most of her career has been focused around Interior Architectural Design in the retail sector as a Retail Design Manager for large Australasian shopping centres.
While art, in various forms, has always been in her life, one of the main reasons for moving to Clyde, from Auckland in 2009, has been to reignite her passion for fine art.
Melanie’s works are strongly influenced by her surroundings. The Central Otago landscape has enabled her to capture the unique geography, colour palette and distinct seasons, only found in this part of the country. Her mixed media style, oil pastel and gouache on fine art paper, produces a bold, print like quality to her work.
