Artist | Curator
Madeline is an Australian artist living and working in Orange, NSW. Madeline completed a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Newcastle in 2009 majoring in printmaking and photography. She has worked as the artist in residence at an educational institution from 2010 - 2014. Madeline is currently the owner of The Corner Store Gallery in East Orange. Through the gallery she hopes to share her love of all types of art and design. Madeline also teaches regular workshops covering a range of materials and mediums ranging from watercolour techniques, crochet and weaving through to jewellery-making.
Madeline’s abstract compositions are inspired by the unique beauty of the Australian bush; the way dappled sunlight filters through the canopy, casting long rays of light and shadow and the distinctive blue-green of Eucalyptus leaves filling the air with their familiar scent. Madeline simplifies and exaggerates the shapes she finds in nature and uses blocks of colour to create works that, like the Australian bush, are simultaneously vibrant and serene.
