About Mela Cooke:
Refuge is commonly sought from the complex and demanding nature of the world around us. I have always found that sculpture provides that perfect escape, to a state of mind of quiet reflection. This then allows me to harness my creative energy, hopefully with insight & clarity.
Over time my sculptures have moved more & more towards simplicity of design and line. Through my sculptures I endeavour to portray the beguiling people and animals around me, celebrating their whimsical and beautiful natures.
