Janet Melrose RSW (b. 1964) works in watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. Sometimes her subject is the wood next to her studio, the pond, birds in a tree, or a memory of a visit to Italy.

“To me they are always like simple haiku: they too are small poems that are hard to forget.”

Tony Davidson, Director of Kilmorack Gallery


“I have always been interested in nature and the way our life is affected by it. I make drawings of plants, birds, animals and insects that live in the area I also occupy, acutely aware of the fragile balance in which we all exist.” Janet Melrose


Janet Melrose RSW studied at Edinburgh College of Art and has exhibited in the UK and USA.
