Melinda Marshman

Melinda Marshman is a Sydney based artist who’s painting practice reflects her unique way of
seeing the world. Her preferred view is somehow cropped, her focus penetrating as she seeks to capture the essential qualities and emotive sensations of the subject, whether the portrait or landscape. ‘Nearly Always Looking Up’ is her first solo exhibition with Robin Gibson Gallery. The series is inspired by the landscape she enjoyed whilst on a recent residency in Paris.

Melinda has exhibited in Australia and overseas, she has won numerous awards and her work is held in both public and private collections. In 2014 Melinda graduated from the National Art School with Honours, and was awarded the Storrier Onslow Paris Studio Residency which she undertook for three months at the Cité International des Arts, in 2015.
