Melissa De Winter

The Hive Studio
Visual Artist

Melissa enjoys experimenting and combining mediums in new ways. As an apiarist, considering leftover wax from harvesting honey one day, she decided to have a go at reviving the ancient process of encaustic (hot beeswax painting).  

Encaustic provided a perfect medium for experimentation, pushing boundaries and combining alcohol ink, sketches, oil paint and water colour for a unique take on botanicals. 

Her home studio overlooking acres of bush and wildflowers is the perfect location for focusing on beautifully detailed botanicals and abstract landscapes vibrant with the contrasting colours of Australia.
