Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Melody Downie

Melody is excited to share her serene, light-filled art space with festival goers – it is situated on her  lifestyle block, within the lush green foothills bordering Omokoroa. Her combined love for flowers and art have given her the opportunity to express herself creatively, and the result is bloom painting. Mainly in acrylics, her pieces are large and feature dramatic floral blooms. Her creativity extends to ceramics – she makes the likes of platters, by hand, and they often include 3D flower additions.
