Melissa Beachcroft-Shaw

Artist Vienna, Austria

(noun): vivacious, with an unimaginable passion for creating.

Born in Zimbabwe and currently living in Vienna, Austria. Melissa has travelled extensively and draws inspiration from the people around her and nature, particularly animals. She completed her honours degree in fine arts in South Africa. Passionate about painting in all mediums, watercolour has grown to be a favourite with it's dreamy simplicity and fluidity.

After the birth of her first daughter, Sophie, a sweet obsession for nursery art and fun family portraits developed.

Her portfolio of current work, previous commissions and gifts are here on display. Each and every one is customisable from top to toe.

Contact Melissa directly if you are interested in a unique special illustration of your own.
