Melina van Wyk (m_illustrate) is an artist based in Nelson, New Zealand with a passion for the whimsical and unexpected. Her digital art features loveable creatures; some cute, others with attitude but all created to celebrate our uniqueness and brighten someone else's day.
"Drawing is how I meditate - I love that something that gives me a few hours of calm and mindfulness in turn brings a smile to someone else."
Melina is passionate about promoting both mental health and autism awareness and believes in giving back by donating a portion of her sales to organisations making the world a better place.
Melina's favourite quote “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Seuss
