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, tutoring at Central Saint Martins and Ravensbourne and running various Illustration and visual arts workshops, and teaching online. 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.
