My Story.

my story.

Kaya, I'm Mel, a Noongar Aboriginal Artist living on Whadjuk Country, Western Australia.

I was born in Nambour, Gubbi Gubbi Country in Queensland and moved to Western Australia at the age of 10. My Woods family heritage is from Gnowangerup, Goreng Country in South West WA.

Through a variety of mediums, I use paint as a tool to tell stories and share knowledge. Raised away from my Aboriginal heritage, I wasn’t connected to my culture. Through painting I seek to rebuild that connection, with a self-taught practice that extends from acrylics on canvas to digital designs and large murals.

I am really passionate about sharing my heritage and culture to keep it alive, leading workshops and inspiring the younger generation by telling stories through art.


I have experience working with a number of clients, creating work for private and corporate commissions, artwork licensing, indoor and outdoor murals and public art projects. I have been an artist in residence for 2 years working with ScoutsWA groups and DCP children and have a large involvement working with children at local schools, creating art workshops and painting murals.
