Copper Shade Tree presents,
Melanie Fain - "Celebrating Nature"
March 27th - April 19th, 2014
Melanie's passion for nature is
clearly reflected in her subtle, yet powerful works of art. For over 30
years, Melanie has brought the beauty
drama of nature to her collectors offering them an intimate view of the
natural world. She translates her sensitive perceptions into elegant
hand-colored etchings and watercolors.
Using a less is more
philosophy, Melanie strives to capture attitude, mood, and personality
through the use of positive and negative space, color, and composition.
Her goal is to give her viewers something from nature they can connect
Melanie makes her home in
the Texas Hill Country, and travels across the United States in pursuit
of her favorite subjects: birds, botanicals, insects, fishing, hunting,
and breathtaking landscapes. Much of her field work is done with a
camera, providing valuable reference from which to work in the quiet of
Melanie s dedication to her
art has lead to inclusion in national and international exhibitions,
feature articles, publication in books and numerous accolades. Her work
is in private and corporate collections across the United States and
have always been drawn to nature - it is my livelihood, my recreation,
my comfort, my home. It is who I am and what I know best. - Melanie Fain
