Melody Travers was born in France and acquired a Masters in Art and Art History at the Université Paris VIII in Paris and moved to London after graduating in 2009.
Her art is inspired by wildlife, literature, prehistoric cave art and traditional Chinese paintings. Her aim is to create beautiful animals in loose and simple lines which hark back to Men’s first creative efforts and reminds us of how we have evolved.
She also uses her love of literature to add elements of story-telling in her art, often naming her pieces after books. She is fascinated by the fact the humans have been making stories and art for thousands of years and enjoys blending human characteristics with the beautiful nature of the animals.
