Melanie Mcdonald

I am a contemporary British artist originally from Newquay, Cornwall U.K. Today I am based in Brittany, France.I have lived in Newquay, Penzance and Falmouth in Cornwall and had my own art gallery for several years in Truro, Cornwall. Over the last few years I have travelled frequently across the Channel from Cornwall to Brittany and eventually fulfilled my ambition to move here in Dec 07.I gain much of my inspiration from the Cornish landscape - in particular beaches and the sea in Cornwall. I especially love North Cornwall; my paintings often focus on Padstow, Polzeath Beach and Rock. Each time I visit Cornwall, Iím always drawn to the north coast for ideas for more paintings. The Camel Estuary and Daymer Bay near Padstow in Cornwall are also continuing reference points.
