Mel Rye


Hello! I'm Mel, and I make pictures.

My work is mixed media, and I like to incorporate texture, layering and some more intricate elements which combine drawing, collage and paper cutting which I manipulate digitally. My work tends to be quite playful and incorporates elements of humour, silliness or the unexpected, to create pieces which have a broad appeal to both children and adults. 

As well as making illustrations, I am also a qualified teacher, working part time as Head of Art & Design in a Sixth Form College as well as tutoring at Central Saint Martins and running various Illustration and visual arts workshops. If you would like more information about my experience, the workshops I have delivered or have any other questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
