Melinda Bond


A freelance artist and illustrator working digitally and with watercolour, charcoal, and acrylic paint. Let me create for you by commissioning an artwork, or you can shop my already made art and products.


Hi, I'm Melinda...

/ bond art and design (baad) and I'm a freelance artist and illustrator working out of Brisbane, Australia. I use art to document and express my relationship with life and all its wonders, with a particular fondness for faces. 


My method of expression seems to come in seasons; some of them long lasting and others fleeting love affairs with bolts of inspiration. I love to use art to document whatever I see when I indulge in my imagination, so my influences vary and change as I do. I have a particular love for faces and watercolour, but I believe we shouldn't put a limit on what ideas we welcome into our minds. I have a love for plants and animals, I love to be outside and exploring, and I love to try different mediums. 

I've always been a creative and expressive person, and am so happy and grateful that I can chase this dream by making beautiful art for you. I welcome the opportunity to create commissioned artworks, and you can find more about how to make that happen here

Thanks for reading, and thanks for being here to help me live my dreams.

All of the beautiful photos you see have been captured by my talented friend, Ainsley. You can find more of her work here.
