Biography Melanie Fain
“I have always been drawn to nature...It is my livelihood,...my reaction,...my comfort...my home.”
Boerne, Texas artist, Melanie Fain finds inspiration for her beautiful etchings from the natural world around her. Drawing from images of nature she observes every day, Fain offers collectors an intimate view of birds, botanicals and insects.
She follows the ‘less is more’ philosophy of her mentor, Thomas Quinn and creates work with a beautiful simplicity that she terms ‘a visual haiku’. A bird perches on a branch, a flower floats in space or a hand-tied fly hovers, waiting for a fish to jump.
Fain’s hand-colored etchings and watercolors have received accolades at the prestigious Birds in Art and Art of the Animal Kingd
