Melanie Cormack-Hicks - Fine Artist

Contemporary landscapes &  Seascapes

The Power of Art

Art is so much more than paint on board – it can speak to your heart, invoke powerful emotions, conjure long-forgotten memories, and take your breath away.

I’m Melanie Cormack-Hicks, a fine artist based in the beautiful Cotswolds. I create contemporary paintings of the nature and landscapes I love, working from my studio, the woodlands and meadows that surround it, or the pebbled beaches of the rugged Devon coastline.

I capture moments you’ll fall in love with and rediscover every day.

“I have to have it. I love it.” 

I could see it in their eyes. The couple who stood in front of me could picture themselves coming downstairs each morning, feeling like they were walking straight into their woodland painting. They held on so strongly to the moment their painting would give them every time they looked at it, that I had no doubt this painting would be theirs.

These are the magical moments I hold on to, and the reason I do what I do.
