ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Melanie Mascarenhas is a UK based artist and naturalist whose practice is informed by a love of direct, considered, observational fieldwork and an intimate connection with wildlife in its environment. Her unique, firsthand wildlife encounters are brought to life through expressive painting, drawing and printmaking. Melanie’s work shares the interconnection between organisms and their fragile ecosystems through the interplay of colour, movement and sound drawing, creating a visual representation of the rhythm and energy of the places and experiences that inspire her.

#SKETCHFORWILDLIFE: Each year, the talented artists who take part in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year are invited to participate in #SketchForWildlife. These small postcard sized original artworks give everyone a chance to own a totally unique piece of work, by a highly sought-after collection of artists.

The postcards have always been extremely popular and we hope you will support this initiative. The subject and medium of the postcard has been left entirely up to the artist, just being their own celebration of the natural world.

DELIVERY INFORMATION: This piece will be posted to buyers after conclusion of the exhibition on 16 September 2023. UK delivery costs are included in the price. International postage may incur additional costs that will be confirmed after purchase.

CONSERVATION CONTRIBUTION: 100% of the proceeds from this sale will support the charitable work of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and our ground-based conservation partners across Africa and Asia.
