About IllustrationbyMel

Sales 80
On Etsy since 2019

Hi! My name is Melanie Grandidge and I'm a freelance Illustrator based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I moved up here from Lancashire, England to study at Edinburgh College of Art. I graduated with a BA(Hons) in Illustration in 2020.

My love for story-telling is conveyed through my illustrations using the mediums of watercolour, ink and digital art. I love packing up my watercolour palette, paint brushes and sketchbook to go exploring to find beautiful scenes to paint from observation.

I opened my Etsy shop during university but it was the lockdown of 2020 that motivated me to create more for my Etsy shop and make a business with my Illustration. I have lots of exciting products planned and in the works so stay tuned! I have so far loved this platform as a way to share my Illustration. Every time I receive an order it makes me so happy! Packaging my Illustration work feels like I'm sending out a gift and I love hearing back from customers.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about my Illustration work, shop or commissions at melaniegrandidge [!at] or message me on Etsy. I am always happy to help and would love to hear from you!

Happy shopping!
Mel x
