Melanie Caple is an artist, curator and arts manager.

Melanie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) with Distinction from RMIT University in 2012, and completed her Masters of Arts Management at RMIT in 2014. Working as an artist, curator and arts manager she has worked in multiple capacities within the arts industry. Melanie has exhibited in various group exhibitions, and has staged solo exhibitions around Melbourne and Gippsland including a major solo exhibition in 2015 at the Latrobe Regional Gallery as the recipient of the annual Dick Bishop Memorial Award. Most recently she was a recipient of the People’s Choice Award in the Roi Art Prize.

Melanie divides her time between Melbourne’s north and her large painting studio in South Gippsland. With a studio there that backs onto a tract of reforested land, native flora has always been present in Melanie’s work.

My work is motivated by an exploration of the most delicate things in life; from endangered botanical species to the fragile emotions of humankind..
