About the Artist

Alice Melo is a Creativity Studio Artist at the Tett Centre. She can be found there, in her studio on Lake Ontario, capturing her love of animals in acrylic on canvas with as much personality as her endearing subjects themselves. Drawing from her roots in the Azores and following in the creative footsteps of her grandfather, she brings a unique viewpoint, respect and faith in nature.

Self-taught in realism, Alice shows her dedication through the detail in her work but also shows a high level of intuition by capturing the spirit of her subject. There is a warmth and empathy that leaps into the hearts of the viewers. An important message that she's relaying on behalf of the animals that might not be in the spotlight otherwise: "the world is a better place because of them."  |  Instagram @AliceMeloFineArt  |  Facebook @AliceMeloFineArt
