Art and Painting

Sketching History

Me and Dad, about 1975

Yellow Docs Melinda Smith 2021

My art comes from my travel experiences, imagination and passion for the environment. 

I am proud to be an artist who has cerebral palsy.

I have always been a poet and writer, but my visual art came much later. I knew very little about drawing and painting until a dream one night where I discovered colours and brushes. This inspired me to buy my first kit of coloured pencils and a sketch book.

I have been painting and drawing ever since, and am now starting to experiment with photography. The red heart in my images is about the love I feel in creating each image, and about my connection to the person or animal I am acknowledging.

Redbubble is where I upload some of my favourite designs for purchase.

I use Redbubble because it allows you to choose whether you want my design on a t- shirt, a mug, a bag or almost anything you can think of.

These are great for gifts.

I also welcome commissions, if you are looking for something different.
