Welcome to Melanie Brear Art!

I like to create art that exists beyond the borders of reality - where like dreams and visions, anything is possible.  I also explore the inner worlds of dreamscapes, which form the basis for the unfamiliar and fantastical.  I also see spirits and feel the presence of angelic beings, and the elementals and devas, which are intricately connected to all aspects of nature. 

Here is a collection of my art, which to use a metaphor, is like the many branches and leaves of a tree, since it originates from the same source, and every piece of art that I create comes from the deep wellspring of the imagination…

Mermaid Art
Prices from £19.50 (exc VAT) £19.50 (inc VAT)

I have a deep love of the sea, and a fascination for mermaids and often sense their presence when I am near the ocean.  The mermaid and her association with the element of water - and her fish form, represent the shifting moods and inner tides of the unconscious psyche.

The mermaid has captured the imagination from the earliest of times, where her compelling and elusive form is as mysterious and unfathomable as the ocean in which she resides.

The original mermaid artwork was created with oils using layers of translucent oil to create the final image.  Oil on circular panel 20 inches x 20 inches.

The Guardian of Nectan’s Glen artwork was inspired by the waterfall at Nectan’s Glen, which is a spiritual site in Trethevy, in North Cornwall.  I always sense the presence of a Guardian who presides over the place and feels a deep spiritual connection there.  It is a magical place of spirit where I can sense their presence and feel their energies around me.

Archangel Michael Art
Prices from £21.00 (exc VAT) £21.00 (inc VAT)

I was inspired to paint Archangel Michael when I was going through a very difficult time in my life.  The solution at the time seemed unlikely and I called on Archangel Michael for help - and it came to me in the most immediate and unlikely way!

Many people have commented on this painting, and have felt a deep familiarity and connection with it.  They have described their experience, such as one woman who said that she saw Archangel Michael in a dream and he looked just like how I had painted him.

Angel Of Avalon Art
Prices from £20.00 (exc VAT) £20.00 (inc VAT)

Cordelia Art
Prices from £20.00 (exc VAT) £20.00 (inc VAT)

The image depicts Cordelia, the Goddess of spring and summer flowers and flower faeries.  Inspired by the world of faery and the large white flowers that are depicted in the painting come from my fascination of Bindweed or Bellbind, with its large white trumpet flowers, which can be found growing profusely in the hedgerows where I live in Somerset.  I especially wanted to include the large flowers in this painting of Cordelia.

The original Cordelia artwork was created with oils on a panel using layers of translucent oil to create the final image.  Oil on Panel 14 inches x 18 inches.

Samhain Eve Art
Prices from £15.50 (exc VAT) £15.50 (inc VAT)
