ABOUT MELLA MELLA’S
Owner Mel Gunaydin – A Londoner with a big heart and a warm smile.
‘Mella Mella was a nickname my baby nephew Harrison gave me when he uttered his first words, since then most people now call me Mella! I have always had a passion for Art & Design, and excelled as an English teacher in London, Sydney and Paris.
I am naturally creative and passed my degree in Art at Kingston University with distinction. I grew up in North London but moved to Chiswick in 2009 after my father passed away. He always used to say, even though London is a big city, there are parts that have a village feel and much like Islington was to him, I now feel this with Chiswick. It’s a place I have fallen in love with and feel I can now give something back to the community, helping to inspire creativity for adults and children of all ages.’ – Mel Gunaydin
