About Gabby Mellor
I spent my childhood between the countryside and the coast in Dorset.
I first became interested in art in my primary years when my Mother (an artist in her own right) took me on bike rides and picnics where she would encourage me to sketch anything of interest.
In the 70’s and 80’s I was a busy ‘stay at home mother’ when I had five children of my own and took up painting in oils in any spare time I had.
I am a self taught artist but when I moved to the Tavistock area six years ago I joined a local art group where my inspiration for painting was developed and I also discovered the joy of pastel painting which has now become a second love.
