Owner description: Galerie 'Umatatea is located on the Motu of Maeva, about 800 meters after the bridge, across from the Pension Delord/Camping Vana'a. Melanie works in a variety of mediums--primarily oils on canvas, framed in tropical woods hand carved by a Marquesian sculptor. Her paintings are imbued with the saturated light and colours of Polynesia, and a heartfelt tenderness for the everyday objects, anecdotal attitudes and expressions of the Polynesians. Limited Edition prints available.

melanie, both as an artist and a person, will capture your heart. to spend time with her is like being in the sunshine, she makes you feel anything is possible, and that the whole world is a wonderful place.
her paintings capture those moments your camera couldn't, and add texture and light to your most poignant memories.
we are the proud owners of 3 of melanie's paintings and one print.
brava, melanie! the world is a better place with you in it.
