Melanie Gillis graduated from The University of Toronto in 1995 with a BSc in Psychology. For the following year she taught psychology at Sheridan College while pursuing her photography on the side.  In 1997 she combined her passions for social psychology, fine art photography and people in general, and opened her studio in Guelph, where she built her career as a photographic artist. She moved to Hamilton in 2004 where she currently lives and works.

The Studio On James is in the heart of Hamilton’s artist district of James Street North.
