Melinda Kirkpatrick is a New England artist who is inspired by nature, history, and literature. Melinda paints nautical, floral, whimsical, and mystical works, and is always seeking to grow and develop her work.
Melinda grew up in central Massachusetts, surrounded by beautiful flower gardens cultivated by her mother, who is also an artist. Melinda utilizes a unique use of color and natural design to create charming and evocative images rooted in local history and literature. Her paintings often include descriptive captions or quotes from literature. Melinda’s art is mostly framed works, but she also paints on old New England barn board and architectural pieces found in the fields of the Brimfield antique shows.
Melinda has gained grassroots popularity by toting her paintings to art shows and local open-air markets, where her work has caught on and is now sold in retail outlets throughout the East Coast.
Douglas Kirkpatrick left the corporate world as an attorney and is now in the process of developing exciting creations for Flowerness Farm, including a fictional work entitled “Diary of a Secret Mermaid,” a book which Melinda and Doug are collaborating on and Melinda will illustrate.
