A month ago I received a submission that at first, felt pretty normal. Normal in the sense the work was great, but I wasn’t feeling “attached” to it (obviously I enforce a strict, scientific acceptance process!!) But on clicking, exploring and striking up further conversation with Melissa Boardman, I discovered she was fronting a truly beautiful body of work across so many different mediums. Under the guise of Bird Plus Bird, the Wellington based artists/designer/illustrator/maker produces prints, calendars, repeating pattern (which was GORGEOUS!) and to be honest….I imagine there is a WHOLE lot more to be revealed from her!
So I am very excited to present, what I feel is, the beginnings of Melissa Boardman’s creative offering and I sure hope anyone brand people out there recognise a visual talent that might be worth collaborating with!
