Melissa Hartley











Melissa Hartley is an artist, graphic designer, cat lover, tea drinker, Francophile, movie and music lover with a terrible sweet tooth. She graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a BA (Distinction) in design, minor in illustration.
Her compositions vary from simple still-life studies, to confrontation figures against undefined backgrounds, in a dream-like state. Others highlight the turbulent relationship man has with nature. Each subject is attractive 
yet somehow disturbing.
She desires to create images of beauty and mystery that allow the viewer to find their own personal significance in them.

She lives in Sydney with her husband and two cats, Ludwig and Wolfgang.
