Melinda Marshman is a Sydney based Australian painter recognized for her spare and evocative style. She has a strong interest in recording the small and often ordinary moments in life that when closely observed and recorded can become as monumental as the grand moments. The landscape in particular, is a subject she returns to for its vivid visual and rich sensory potential. ‘Melinda draws our attention to slivers of reality sensed on the periphery of our awareness, framed and extracted to reveal pure forms and potent sensory memory. Her paintings record scraps of observation and fleeting moments of beauty’ Margate Lamond In 2014 Melinda graduated from the National Art School with Honours.
