Hello, I’m Melissa Humber an artist, clothing designer & loreologist living in the Hebrides.
I have spent over a decade running my own artisan clothing business, in 2016 I felt called to focus more on painting so decided to study Fine Art in Northumberland - I graduated with a degree in 2019. The twists and turns of life then led me to the Scottish isle of Mull.
Every day, I thank my lucky stars for the wildness of Mull, the lore, the serene and surreal landscapes that provide endless inspiration for recent dream, sea and landscape paintings featured on this website. I also write a folkloric travelogue infused with time spent exploring and researching the loreology of Mull and the surrounding Scottish islands - sign up to the substack newsletter here. You can browse my portfolio of original paintings and seasonal collections of clothing here.
