Hello there!

My name is Melanie Gooi Lee Mei. People call me by my first name Melanie  (or Mel for short), however I use Lee Mei as my artist persona.

As an artist, I love to explore the heart and mind by capturing feelings and thoughts through painting abstractly.

My current works of  abstract paintings are created by allowing the paints to seep into paper with a wild abandoned approach. Thereafter I bring them together through collage layering to form an abstract landscape. 

 These collages of paintings are explorations into my own emotional and mental world of both conscious and unconscious imagination.

 

 

some memories never
leave your bones. Like
salt in the sea; they become
part of you.
and you carry them
