Mel Upjohn is a talented artist from New Zealand's capital city, Wellington. Her work is known for textures - both visual and tactile. She describes her latest range of work as lighthearted and a "bit pop art" but is always atmospheric. Mel prefers to leave interpretation up to the viewer. Nick Archer from Salient Magazine comments that "she has no preconceived idea of what each work is about and just lets her emotion evolve through the images...
