We are Ali-P and Orla Mellon. We been friends for over 20 years and are both visual artists. We are both passionate about painting and creativity and are hugely inspired by nature and the amazing creatures of our beloved planet.

Our work really compliments each other as we both love to combine vibrant colours,  patterns and organic elements with beautiful insects and animals to create joyful images.

Our Vision

We felt that creating imagery of ‘Wee Wild Winged Wonders’ was a great idea for a joint exhibition as it is a way of celebrating these incredible creatures plus it would also enable us to raise awareness of our declining biodiversity. 

We have been spending long hours painting in our studios to create a body of work we feel is worthy of exhibiting. Our dream is to make a living doing what we love- creating beautiful artwork which we want to share with the world. This exhibition is a step towards that dream.

There has been blood, sweat and tears put into creating our work and now we just need some financial support to pull it all together.

Where the money will go.....

We will have produced 24 pieces of artwork for our exhibition. Framing these pieces professionally is very important because it will enhance the work but also, importantly, protect it. We also need to scan or photograph our artwork. It is important to have a good quality digital copy for our online portfolios and also to reproduce a fine art print. All of this is expensive. We use small, local businesses for these services because we feel it is important to support each other.

We would also like to print some flyers and spend a little on advertising the exhibition on social media.

Giving something back

We have been making (and throwing) bee bombs! We also want to give 10% of the money we raise to ‘People for Bees’ which is part of the Irish Wildlife Trust. Check out this link for more information on the work they do: https://iwt.ie/people-for-bees/
