Hi, I'm Melanie, the illustrator behind A Real Peach studio

A Real Peach was born in reaction to all the time spent on my computer creating digital work. As an attempt to find balance and be more hands-on, I began hoarding supplies like watercolor, gouache, colored pencil, wax crayon, and ink. Experimenting with anything and everything I could find. Let me tell you, it has been a delight.
Our sunroom became a great source of inspiration, a place to observe and capture nature. Captured moments, quiet beauty, simple pleasures, they have become a few of my favorite things and I hope they’re yours too.


— Melanie
