Melanie Biehle is a Seattle based visual artist inspired by the often opposing energy of the city and the sea. Her abstract paintings are fueled by exploring the world, whether the journey is just a short walk down a bustling city sidewalk or a trip that takes her across a wide ocean.

Melanie translates inspiration from her travels into abstract compositions using color palettes and mark making techniques that convey the energy and emotion of place. She’s inspired by the architecture and energy of cities and the movement and meditative qualities of oceans and lakes. Her work is strongly influenced by street art, 60s romantic comedies, mid-century modern textiles, and Southern California surf culture.

Melanie was born in rural Louisiana, but has claimed the West Coast as her home. She bounced back and forth between Seattle and Los Angeles since 1999. She currently lives in Seattle with her husband, son, and pets.

Melanie’s creative work has been featured in HGTV Magazine, Style by Emily Henderson, UPPERCASE Magazine, Seattle Refined, and The Jealous Curator.
