Mel Elliots vibrant paintings show his passion for the outdoors and wildlife – which he often paints on safari. His range of landscapes reflect the beauty surrounding his home in the idyllic town of Villiersdorp, nestled in the mountains of South Africa’s Western Cape Overberg region.
Mel has been involved with many charitable and outreach programs, helping aid and fund disadvantaged artists as well as numerous other community projects.....Mel Elliott
Mel has been painting professionally since 2005 having studied marketing at Stellenbosch University and then travelling to experience the art scene in the UK and Europe. He returned to join his parents (his father is well known artist Dale Elliott) at their Villiersdorp Art Complex as a partner in the business. As well as painting, he continues to provide art courses throughout the year.Mel Elliott
Mel's painting career has been affected by his African adventures - climbing Mount Kilimanjaro aged 14years, working as artist in residence at Matetsi Private Game Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River and witnessing the Great Migration of the Masia Mara in Kenya.
