With a clean, muted palette of soft pastels, crisp whites and deep saturated tones, Farmboy Fine Arts’s exclusive artist Melissa Gidney has a distinctive style that is instantly recognizable. Her editorial work can be seen in publications such as the recently published The Wisdom of Sundays by Oprah Winfrey. Captured from her travels around the globe, Gidney’s light-filled photographs are carefully curated—creating carefully curated imagery with clear focus on a synthesis of color.
“I’m always asking people, “Yes, but how did it make you feel?” That, above all else, is the true gauge for me,” Gidney says in her interview included in Winfrey’s The Wisdom of Sundays. “I want my images to stir something in you. Maybe it’s a sense of calm. Or a renewed appreciation for things often overlooked. Or maybe, just maybe, it inspires something in you to take steps toward your own true expression. To me, listening to how something makes you feel is what ultimately leads you towards happiness.”
