Who is Melly Johnston? I am a Northern Irish girl who left that troubled land a long time ago. I escaped to the bright lights of London town and like so many other young Irish women before me I became a nurse. That was just one life, there have
been many others - baker, decorator, lover, therapist, mother - to name a few. I now live on the border of beautiful,
wild, mythical Cornwall and luscious, green, rural Devon. I love sunshine and rain, ocean and earth, my son, my
friends and the many furry and feathered creatures who have shared journeys with me. I can see the
influence of nature figuring strongly in my work but also the theme of emotional well-being or
unwell-being and where that sits in the different pieces I create.
Welcome to my world and work.
