Melanie YOUNG

1962—

Melanie Young was born in Stockport but lives and works in Cornwall. Her paintings are figurative, based on personal experience and the interaction of the viewer. For her, the creative process is often chaotic, as she paints following instinct and emotion, until a particular figure and story is drawn out. Her work challenges the audience to embrace the emotions caught in the painting, and respond to them in a very raw instinctual way.
