Mel said: “With so many art events online and people suffering from Zoom overload, it’s time to explore other exhibition opportunities that are still Covid-19 safe.

“Influenced by ‘doorless galleries’ popping up around the country such as the Great Big Art Exhibition launched by Sir Anthony Gormley in January, I wanted to exhibit beyond the typical confines of the gallery space and present my work so to be as accessible as possible while following covid-19 safety rules. “

Mel is currently studying for her master’s Degree at the University of Arts, London.
