Instant Printmaker


" My landscapes often centre around the drama played out in nature, a dark cloud threatens, a sudden burst of sunlight, a moody sky against snow covered fields. These are the times when nature displays her more provocative side; probably for just a few seconds; these often fleeting moments I have tried to capture in my images".

Melvyn is the author of 4 books, the most recent being The Instant Printmaker, published by Collins &' Brown. [Now out of print].
