About the artist
Mel is an Adjahdura (commonly known as Narungga) and Ngadjuri woman from South Australia. Mel grew up all over South Australia & Adelaide metro areas but Yorke Peninsula will always be home to her and Point Pearce is her community. Mel’s life has taken her to many different communities – from the west coast up to APY Lands and more recently the Northern Territory. Her art represents stories that have been passed down from her family, generation to generation. She also reflects her own personal experiences and spiritual journey in her artwork.
