Melita Bloomer - Perfection Is Overrated

How has art impacted or enhanced your life?
Art has had a tremendous impact on my life. As a sufferer of a chronic illness, art has provided a much needed outlet. An opportunity to vent, to create, and center myself. Not only that, the amazing art community has enabled me to meet some wonderful like-minded people, who are now lifelong friends.

Melita Bloomer - Just Let Go

Tell us about your creative process.
Creating almost always starts with an emotion for me. I tend to look at art as a form of therapy, so whatever Im feeling gets left on the page. Once I know what I want to express, I choose colours to suit the mood – bright & cheerful colours to portray a happy emotion, dark, powerful colours to represent the tough times. I then layer those colours, through stenciling, stamping, and such, and am well on my way.

What makes your mixed-media art unique?
I honestly believe all artists’ works are unique. We all leave a little of ourselves behind when we work, so how can our creations not be unique?

MelitaBloomer My name is Melita and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have always been a crafty person – scrapbooking, art journalling and many more, but these days I am primarily a mixed media artist, working with just about any medium I can get my hands on. I love this creative life, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
