Mel Winning MA with Distinction
Having worked as a freelance make-up artist and photographer for many years, I wanted to push my personal work further and decided to do a degree in Illustration at Camberwell Art School in London.
I finished my MA with distinction in 2012 and exhibited at The Medici Gallery in Londons famous Cork Street straight after. My work has been reviewed as being somewhere between dream and reality with a dark undertone obssessed by image.
I developed a liking for abandoned Mannequins and have fallen in love with the challenge of working them into functional art pieces, this path has led to the creation of Nice Anubis giving objects an afterlife by reworking objects and overpainting canvas. I have been a featured artist in the fantastic Reclaim Magazine.
Most of my work is for corporate, private clients and interior designers who commission bespoke art works and photography.
I enjoy the challenge of commissions and I love to share ideas with clients and see them happy with the finished work.
