Welcome you to our gallery & studio

Melody Art Gallery  of Paintings & Photography

Welcome to the online gallery of paintings and photography by David and Melody Hawtin, we offer original paintings and fine art Giclée prints of paintings by Melody with fine art photography by David.  We have our own High Street Gallery here in Porlock, a beautiful working village in the heart of Exmoor, we also have our studio /gallery where Melody can be found painting and her new paintings are drying on the walls.  Melody exhibits her work in selected galleries and exhibitions, notably she has exhibited in New York and Florence and we are currently planning an exhibition at Parallax Art Fair in London during July  2014 and in the Salthouse Gallery in St Ives during the first week of October 2014. British artist Melody continues to paint large oil paintings on canvas with subjects including floral, landscape, seascape and abstract paintings.   Melody was brought up on Exmoor returning to the roots of her inspiration nearly 4 years ago.  Melody says of her work, "Every picture I paint is a little miracle, a joy to conceive.   As I reflect on my choice of colour, composition and content, I know its meaning is more than I can put into words.   My work reflects every tree and cloud I have ever seen, every treasured walk, every happy moment."

Photographer David still feels new to this area and continues to discover the beautiful countryside and landscape that make Exmoor such a special place to paint and photograph.   "I am continually amazed at the changing colours of the countryside and the very special light that seems to start and finish each day, the challenge as a photographer is to learn the patterns and to anticipate the moment, having chosen a location sometime before to be in the right place in the right season to capture that special moment."

Melody and David also consider themselves West Country Artists and you will see the influence of Cornwall and Devon coastlines in their work

You can buy art in our gallery or online, we have selections of original paintings, fine art Giclée prints and fine art photographs inspired by the Exmoor countryside and our travels around the west country and more distant locations.

We hope you enjoy your visit to Porlock and Exmoor, or if you can’t make it in person at least share a glimpse through our eyes as you visit pages in this site.


What do our customers say?

It is wonderful to see Melody's Art on screen, but to witness Her "Paintings Wall" in Her Studio could be compared to receiving a "Dream from God".  Mark

I am more than happy with my recent purchases and your glorious painting of Exmoor fills my bedroom with colour. It cheers me up every morning when I wake up.   All good wishes to you both  -  Geoffrey from Taunton.

The pictures arrived today and they are perfect - just what we wanted. I can't wait to get them on the wall.
Thank you so much for your wonderful service. Helen

We received our painting in its gorgeous frame and we are over the moon with our purchase. Thank you for doing such a magnificent job on the printing, mounting and framing.
It is up on our wall and we've already had compliments about it: it's a great addition to our home.
Best wishes,  Ffion and James

Yes, I love painting and have other work in my studio drying.  It would be lovely to see you here in Porlock the heart of Exmoor National Park, still my favourite place on earth.
