Melissa Peacock is an emerging artist who combines watercolour and other media to reflect the beauty in the world around her. She often uses saturated colour and imagery of flora and fauna in a whimsical contemporary style. As an emerging artist of Surrey, BC, her work can often be found in juried exhibitions within the city, in her favourite local galleries run by the Surrey Arts Council. Her artwork is most commonly purchased online and sent to loving homes across North America. Melissa studied fine arts at Kwantlen University College, focusing on studio arts and colour theory, but left the school in 2010 to play with cakes and cookies at Vancouver Community College. Dissatisfied with this new path, her goal is to one day return to Kwantlen to continue where she left off.
