BERRY Creek artist Melanie Caple has turned drab into fab in the main street of Leongatha, with a beautiful wall mural awaiting the finishing touches to be complete.
Melanie said she was thrilled to be working on the coastal banksia-themed mural for the enjoyment of the whole community.
“Most of my work is in Melbourne so it’s been really nice to do a mural in Leongatha,” Melanie said.
Melanie said this was her second mural commissioned during lockdown and that demand for her artwork was high as people searched for a creative outlet.
“The nature of my work means I’m able to work [in isolation],” she said.
“People are sitting at home wanting stimulation and there does seem to be a demand for creativity and art as a whole at the moment.”
