Madeleine is a contemporary Australian artist living and working in Melbourne, Victoria. She works mainly in acrylics and is a realist still life painter.
her use of colour and shadow create bold, highly detailed and photorealist compositions.
Madeleine finds beauty in the more mundane things. She loves the challenge of making everyday items like shopping trolleys, milk crates and half eaten
toast, seem like a masterpiece and something to be beholden. Madeleine paints the bubbles in a cup of coffee or crumbs on a tablecloth, with enough detail and colour, they jump off the canvas.
Madeleine Studied Visual arts at MIT university in 2003-2004. She majored in painting.
She then studied Illustration at MIT in 2005-2006. where she won a the Aquent award for excellence in Illustration.
Madeleine has worked in Graphic design, Textile design and Illustration for the past 17 years. Working in these roles has refined her skills and eye for
detail, her illustration skills come through in her paintings and she can use her knowledge of colour and lay out to compose an interesting and unique
composition on the canvas.
