Sprinkling the world with whimsy!

Melina van Wyk (m_illustrate) is a digital artist based in Nelson, New Zealand with a passion for the whimsical and unexpected.  Her art is inspired by nature’s beauty and the unique way her autistic son views the world. Melina’s detailed art features loveable creatures; some cute, others with attitude, but all created to bring a smile to your face and to remind the viewer that we are ALL capable of achieving extraordinary things.

This is reflected in her favourite quote by Dr. Seuss, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” - Dr Suess 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.
