Melanie Springbett is a versatile professional artist who resides in Barrie, Ontario. She depicts everything from animals to scenery, pets and people.

She grew up in Northern Ontario in a place called Sylvan Valley. Much of her scenery in her paintings comes from this area.

Growing up on her parents forested acreage she enjoyed what nature had to offer, visiting her favourite places in the forest or sitting by the river. Here she learned her passion for painting nature and wildlife.

During art class in high school she experimented with different mediums. First in watercolor, acrylic then oil. She eventually took up oil because of the rich color it produces. She sold her first painting then.

As a child she always wanted to make a living as an artist. Now she's taken up art as a full time job...her dream. She loves both nature and art so to work with them together just make sense. She does field work as much as possible for inspiration, and enjoys visiting Algonquin Provincial Park. Now that she resides in Barrie, Ontario, the park is not very far from her home.

After the birth of her first child she has taken up portraiture to a much greater extent. Recently she has discovered how beautiful chalk pastel can be on the right paper. It works well for portraits because of the many flesh tones available.

She also loves to do pet portraits. She has always had a family pet and does believe what is said "dogs are man's best friend."

She has exhibited in a number of shows including Cobourg Waterfront Festival, Pelham Art Festival, Kempenfest in Barrie and the All About Pets Show at the International Center in Toronto.

She has been honoured with an invitation to be included in the Worldwide Nature Artists Group (now Artists for Conservation), an exclusive, international society of world-class artists to promote conservation and their work on the internet.
