I’m Mel … I’m an artist, lifelong learner, and traveller if I have the time and money.

Originally from southern Germany, I spent a decade living and studying in Ireland, Germany, Finland and Iceland and travelled to many other places. Most of my works have been inspired by those travels and by my friends. Since 2011 I reside in Iceland where I paint, work, pay taxes and explore the country.

More recently my drawings have become an exploration of people, places and things that caught my attention along the way.

If interested in any of the works displayed on this blog, questions or suggestions for collaborations feel free to send me an email:  namjucat[at]gmail.com or use the contact form below.

Todo era nuevo: desde de espíritu de la gente o la variedad de las comidas, las plantas y animales hasta el paisaje y el contacto con los muertos.”
