    Melanie Brear


  • About this artist
  • Melanie Brear is a Wiltshire based artist and illustrator of spiritual, visionary and fantasy art. She was born in Bradford, UK in 1970. Melanie comes from a diverse background – and cites some of the many places she has lived as influencing her work, which range from Edinburgh to Exmoor! Her first occupation was as a self-employed picture framer, but later she found her true calling as an artist. Since then she has self-trained and taught herself traditional oil painting techniques.

    Her interests are in the esoteric, spirituality, Jungian psychology and healing.

    Dreams and the hypnagogic state both play a part in facilitating her creative process. Some of her art is inspired by the imagination – where she fuses fantastic and mythical elements into a realistic style.

    Melanie has taken part in a joint National Trust exhibition at East Riddlesden Hall in West Yorkshire and her most recent solo exhibition was at Glastonbury Galleries, Glastonbury, UK in 2016. A collection of her art can also be seen online at Visionary Art Gallery – which includes some of the best visionary, imaginative realistic and surrealist artists worldwide. Her art is also featured in an Austrian publication: The Lexicon of Fantastic Artists: ISBN 9783746035307.
