Collection: Melissa Clements

Melissa Clements is a British-born fine artist from Perth, Western Australia. Specialising in classical painting, Melissa’s work is informed by her experience as a migrant, using art to interpret memory and identity while making sense of being human in the contemporary world. 
Melissa has been a finalist The Archibald (2023), Darling (2022) and Lester Prize (2021) and at the age of 23, she was commissioned by the Supreme Court of Western Australia to paint the official portrait of the Chief Justice, Peter Quinlan. Melissa is the 2024 Studio 7 Resident at PS Art Space, Fremantle, where she currently works. Her work is held in public and private collections across Australia.
