About the Artist

Lia Melia
Cambridge, South East England

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....

    Ekaterina Golubina I like how the paint is flowing and forming the pattern with your help. Same time you can observe the materials natural movement.
    p. s- hope my english not so bad ...

    Lia Melia Thank you for the comments; yes, Pavel, no head or arms! I like to look at a body like that; it could depersonalise, but I'm not sure it does; the body speaks it's own language.
    Your English is fine Ekaterina, thank you for troubling to express yourself so well.

    Iliana Tosheva As I mentioned some time ago, Lia, your 'bodies' speak a language of their own! What an amazingly perfect match for 'His'! We can hide behind our facial expressions as much as we want but we feel through our bodies. And what could be more vulnerable and beautiful than a naked human body?! You've rendered that brilliantly.

    Divine Mania This is a good technique, in fact it is such a technique (similar) which I frequently use when I want to partially obliterate the human form and keep it at the same time. It's a secret, don't give out too much of the technique, people must earn it. Great work here!
