Ginette Melanson was born in Moncton, New Brunswick in 1977. She currently lives in Dieppe, New Brunswick. Ginette works predominantly in the medium of painting and acrylics and produces a variety of figurative and abstract paintings. She is inspired by her travel, instincts, nature and current affairs.
Her technique with palette knives and bright colors captures the audience's connection with her pieces. Ginette is self-taught and has benefited from local artists and mentors. She was a finalist at the provincial Art Battle in 2015 and 2016. She had media coverage of her work via Gin & Julz, through which she and former painting partner, Julie Arsenault, became known. Ginette will be attending Shankhill Castle Art Residency, Ireland and La Macina di San Cresci Art Residency, Italy in October 2017. Her future solo exhibitions include Moncton Gallery, Moncton, N.B. and Gallery Nineteen Nineteen, Halifax, N.S., in spring 2018.
