Lot 311 - Melissa Scott-Miller - Canal Path in Maida Vale
Born in London in 1959, I’ve always just painted the world around me, so mainly views of London, places I’ve experienced growing up here and being a student and a mother, a dog owner and now a Granny. My work is very detailed, I use thick paint and small brushes and make lots of little marks, I like to paint outside in parks and street corners trying to hide but also enjoying the life around me, trying hard to capture light and natures effect on the city.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The three postcards I have painted are in oil paint, they all London scenes, favourite places that mean something to me and in each one is either a cat or a dog and in one the back of my little grandson, he talks to the cats where he lives!
