Melissa Kime

Melissa Kime graduated with MA Painting from the Royal College of Art, London in 2015 having studied at the Royal Drawing School, London and University College Falmouth, where she completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2011. The magic of the everyday weaves itself into her paintings and drawings with threads of information evoked by mysterious haunted landscapes, allegorical animals, hag stones or talismanic rocks found on the foreshore of the River Thames. Populated by characters informed by folklore and mythology, Kime reawakens a spellbinding realm that ordinarily lies all too dormant.
