Meet Melody Lea Lamb

Here is a wonderful "Bio" that my dear sweet sister wrote for me;

"Is Melody an artist who can also talk to animals—or a lover of fur and paws who also draws like a dream? Her fans can’t tell where one gift ends and another begins. All they know is that the combination has led to some pretty interesting life circumstances, from teaching art in a chicken coop to composing watercolors on horseback. And that may also be why Melody’s renderings of fairies and forest vistas seem as alive as her portraits of horses and cats.
All creatures great or small, real or imaginary, inspire Melody’s brush.
Having done her time at art school and the gallery scene, with a successful series of commissions along the way, Melody now paints miniature masterpieces in the Berkshire Mountains while tending to a menagerie that includes a horse, a husband, three cats, two kids, and a dog … all of whom have modeled for her at one point or another. Melody’s newest work is available on eBay through Art Cards, Editions and Originals (ACEO)."

When I begin a miniature painting of a particular animal, or woodland being, I find myself becoming slowly and completely enamored with God’s perfect creation. With each stroke I am more in awe of this spirit and throw myself into capturing what inspires me. It's a process filled with heart and my hope is that I can convey at least some of this feeling in each painting I create.

In the last year I have become involved with a wonderful group called Art For Critters. This is a group of artists who donate a portion of thier art sales to help animal charities. I am a very proud juried member of this group!
