"As the only child, my mother would buy me books to read and art books to keep me occupied.


Hi, I’m Melinda.

I’m a writer and artist from Malaysia, living in Portugal. My art is usually inspired by reflections on life and what I observed in my surroundings. It took me over two decades of doing all the other “safer” jobs before I decided to dive into this new artistic career. It has been years in the making—starting as a seven-year-old, sitting cross-legged on the floor, learning to draw from the art books my late mother has bought. I’m thankful to share my art and world with you. 

💖 Melinda
