Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"Sometimes I see her breeze by carrying a yoga mat. I catch a glimpse of her on an escalator. I think that was her trying on clothes at Anthropologie. She passes by too fast for me to recognize which one of her I saw. Sometimes when I see her I say a silent, “thank you” - for creating, walking, and living the winding paths that made me “me.”

This is the last paragraph of an essay that I wrote in 2013 — “Bumping Into Ghosts”. It was published in The Equals Record. (Message me if you’d like to read the entire essay.)

This concept is the basis of a new ongoing abstract painting collection — Bumping Into Ghosts. My series in progress explores the theme of the many different versions of ourselves that we become in our lifetime. The walls we tear down and rebuild. Layers of lives that we live.

Artist Profile

Born: 1969

Hometown: West Monroe, Louisiana

Based in: Everett, Washington

Through her artwork, Melanie Biehle explores the inner workings of the mind, mysteries of the universe, and the often opposing energy of the city and the sea.

The artist studied psychology in college and began her creative career first as a writer. After working in Los Angeles as a screenwriter and film marketer, Melanie returned to Seattle, started a family, and fell in love with painting. She studied abstract painting and composition at Gage Academy of Art and further honed her eye through freelance graphic design and photography assignments.

Today she creates large and small scale abstract paintings for private collectors, art consultants, and interior designers. Each piece is painted with the intention to calm or energize a space through the use of shape, color, and form.

Along with creating art for residential and commercial spaces around the world, the artist often partners with companies who want to elevate their events, products, and marketing by commissioning unique original artwork. Melanie’s work has been commissioned, purchased, and licensed for photography backgrounds, digital art installations, apparel, and stationery.

Melanie was born in rural Louisiana but feels most at home on the West Coast. She has split her time between Seattle and Los Angeles since 1999. Now she lives and paints by a lake near Seattle with her husband, son, dog, and cat.
