Paintings of People and Places

Melanie Hickmore is an artist based in Brighton, England. 

She grew up in County Durham in the Northeast and moved south in 1998 after graduating from the University in Northumbria.

Melanie uses line and colour confidently to create bold and beautiful paintings that bring joy to people around the world.

Welcome to Melanie's website.

Melanie has the uncanny knack of beautifully capturing atmospheres and essences, making her work incredibly relatable. I often feel like I have been to the places before, they are familiar yet otherworldly - magical and dreamy in their softness. I love how she finds patterns and lines and softens them to create really fluid, sometimes abstract structures. I find her work amazing because I can feel her being moved by the subject, and in turn feel the connection myself.
