Madeleine had her first exhibition and sold her first piece of art at age 5. Today she is a professional artist living in the West Highlands neighborhood, known for her richly patterned and colorful paintings. Her enthusiasm for color, and the joy she feels when painting is clearly visible in her finished work, passing on that delight to the viewer. Her study of pattern and textiles for her art has continued beyond the canvas, she now designs fabrics based on her painting, taking her passion full circle. She delights in the creation of new products, filling her home and studio with pillows, napkins, upholstery, bags, clothing, tableware, and bedding, all baring her images. “It’s like living in one of my paintings,” she says.
