About Melinda Cowdery
I’ve loved to draw and paint since childhood. After a full career in jewelry design and manufacture, I turned to painting full time in 1986. I was very fortunate that collectors began buying my paintings right away, and soon, painting became my sole livelihood.
Since 1986, my paintings have been represented by six major galleries in western USA, and over 800 have been sold to both private and corporate collectors. I worked first in watercolor, then acrylic, and finally, oil. I am inspired by nature, particularly animals, and hope that the work speaks for itself.
