Jan & Andrew's Melwood Cabana serves two purposes: a studio for Jan, and a workshop for Andrew.

Jan & Andrew’s his & hers backyard studio

Jan & Andrew’s Melwood Cabana serves two purposes: a studio for Jan, and a workshop for Andrew. By requesting an internal wall in their Cabana, they were able to divide the cabana into the two main areas. Jan’s area has been lined, painted and decorated to create a cozy, comfortable studio space. Andrew has added shelving, storage cupboards, drawers, a pegboard and a sturdy workbench to his workshop.

Bertie’s Rural Art Retreat

Dutch artist Bertie paints beautiful portraiture in her Melwood Art Studio in rural NSW.

I just wished Patrick was as quick in lining it but he has done a beautiful job. It gives me inspiration.”
