About Mel Volkman

Mel Volkman is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Maine.

She is most known for her poetic perspective and nuanced approach to seemingly insignificant details. Her work communicates depth and meaning beyond evident visuals, drawing the viewer inward to reflect on both the serene and unquiet emotions connected to the impermanence of life. 

"Nostalgic", “Earthy", “Haunting” and "Poetic" are the words most often used to describe her work. She's humbled to be sharing her work within private and public spaces throughout the world — United States, Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom, France, Italy, and Australia to name a few.

When she's not creating, you can find her gardening and caring for her c. 1800 colonial home and cottage barn studio. Nestled amidst a centuries-old apple orchard, wildflower meadows, and mountain views, this idyllic setting is just a short drive from the misty coast and provides endless inspiration throughout the seasons.
