Melanie’s wall was located at the top of a street and came with a lot of built in ‘character’ to work with. She was inspired by the plentiful local cactus plants and their prickly pear fruit- ‘fici di India’. Melanie created her design around the beautiful crumbling textured parts of the wall and carried bit’s of her design onto random stones and step stones leading up to the mural. If you look closely you will find a Canadian maple leaf, a Sicilian crest and subtle messages in this whimsical mural. Melanie’s vibrant rainbow coloured palate can’t help but make you smile.
