The Power of Art . . . 

Art is so much more than paint on board. It can speak to your heart, invoke powerful emotions, conjure long forgotten memories, and take your breath away.

I’m Melanie Cormack-Hicks, a fine artist based in Stroud in the beautiful Cotswolds.


I create images of nature and landscapes I love, working from my studio, the woodlands, rivers and meadows that surround it,

or the

pebbled beaches of the rugged Devon coastline.


I capture moments you’ll fall in love

with and rediscover every day.

I had a fantastic painting experience on Mel’s
3 Day Art Experience, the venue was perfect too at Hawkwood with lots of inspirational material. Mel is a great teacher she shares all her methods, techniques and tips, I came away with a fire in my belly!

Before I met Mel I didn’t really bother with a sketch book but had always admired others but now mine has started and I love it!  She explained composition and really good tips on the magic of complimentary colour.

I would definitely recommend Mel’s workshops to anyone who wants to be inspired, wants to learn new techniques and have some fun!



The dream of owning original art shouldn’t feel like it’s out of reach whoever you are, and wherever you are in life.

Now you can make the dream of owning a piece of original artwork a reality


I share the story of paintings as they are created, on Instagram , Facebook and YouTube.

 “I have to have it. I love it.”

I could see it in their eyes. The couple who stood in front of me could picture themselves coming downstairs each morning, feeling like they were walking straight into their woodland painting. They held on so strongly to the moment their painting would give them every time they looked at it, that I had no doubt this painting would be theirs.

These are the magical moments I hold on to, and the reason I do what I do.

Once your chosen painting is displayed in pride of place in your home it will catch your eye, make you smile, and take you back to a time, a place or a feeling every time you see it.
