Since completing her BA Fine Art (Curtin Uni 1994), Melissa Boughey has lived and worked on a rural property near Denmark in the far south of Western Australia that she and her husband bought 20 years ago.
My work is a culmination of what I see, being in this landscape, walking it, driving it. Catching glimpses and continuing to condense and abbreviate my experience into the essence of what moves me.
Melissa was shortlisted as a finalist for the prestigious Fleurieu Art Prize. Was awarded a Highly Commended for the Fleurieu Water Prize and in 2014 was shortlisted for the Mandorla Art Award.
