Melanie Phillips was trained in southern England, UK studying Natural
History Illustration, which is the art of painting plants and animals
the inclusion in published books, encyclopedias and magazines.

the decision to go it alone, find my her commissions and be her
own boss. Melanie was commissioned straight away and hasn't looked
back since. Pet portraits, being an animal artist, is her dream
