About the Artist

Lia Melia
Cambridge, South East England, United Kingdom

I had a wonderful teacher who taught me that no matter how technically good an artist is, if they do not paint from the heart and soul, they say nothing. I paint because I have to, and from the heart....

    Iliana Tosheva Great to see you back, Lia! 'Ariel' is just another 'love at first sight' for me - I love the amber and all those blues and browns! Uniquely beautiful as ever!

    Pavel Lefterov Ariel, or God's Lion, or Jerusalem... One has to feel it in order to appreciate it. An excellent example of what Abstract art should be. A strong work for the abstract SD.

    Bernd Hoppe "Ariel" acts on a plane on which it does not require any language. Watch and admire speechless. A completely successful work of abstract art.

    Brian Walsh Beautiful, of course. The colours in the photograph are pretty stunning, so they must be mind-blowing on the original. And you are getting even better at using every single square inch - nothing wasted.
    Wonderful work.

    Suhair Sibai Love the looseness of your work. You count on the happy accident, which makes your work very alluring and strong. The technique is wonderfully unusual; you have to teach me sometimes. Looking for more from you Lia.
    Love, Suhair

    Julie Shackson Oh yes.......that blue! I love the convergence of contrasting colours with the blue at top right. Very skillful.

    karien deroo great work Lia for the abstract SD! it looks so thin and delicate, the layers of color but also so strong and powerful, maybe because of the use of the complimentary colors blue and orange, in a way I mean...the picture, the photograph you show here is full of little lights and things..it's so alive! I wonder how it is in real, I think it must be blowing me off of my feet! I surely vote for you and this piece!
