A Cornwall-based, freelance graphic designer, Melissa was constantly painting as a child. She loves graphic design for its ability to distil challenging topics and subjects into an art form that transcends language and cultural barriers. Graphic design for her is about communication in its simplest form, the more people communicate on a global scale on important matters, the better the world will hopefully be for it. To publish her book, The A-Z of Cornwall, would be magical.
