Scarves by Mel Vugic
After growing up in Broken Hill and living in Adelaide and Sydney, I traveled to Europe, fell in love with Italy and made Florence the base for my textile-design business. In the 22 years since, I have produced fabric designs for high-end fashion labels such as Blumarine, Etro, Roberto Cavalli and Enrico Coveri. I have also participated in numerous art exhibitions.
My Friends Flowers
The inspiration for this piece is my passion for floral design and creating beautiful environments with the addition of styled flowers in beautiful settings. Peonies are my favourite flower. They are classic yet modern and always inspire me to paint
This was my loungeroom in Florence where I lived for 8 years. The home is owned by Susan Nevelson who taught me fabric design and inspired me to make art my life. Eventually I painted every room in this beautiful home. Thank’s Susan
On a beautiful holiday in Greece I was inspired to draw this small cafe. Working outdoors on site is always refreshing and challenging but the light is fantastic and the spontaneous nature of life drawing creates casual and romantic moments.
