Madeleine Faith Williamson Pires is an artist, musician, and languages teacher, based between Manchester and Liverpool, UK.

Her vision is to reveal and express beauty and truth through art and to assist those who want to articulate and express themselves better in English and other languages.Madeleine Pires Jan2020

Madeleine believes art should inspire, affirm and resonate with the spirit of a person, and that developing one’s ability to communicate clearly will make the world a better place!

Madeleine writes and leads art courses at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, and at the Reader, Calderstones, through Liverpool-based art organisation Dot-Art. She also does art workshops in schools – please visit Dot Art Schools, Liverpool for more information in what it entails and how to book.

Please note that during the coronavirus season, classes will be online.


Do check Dot Art Creative Courses for courses that I run. I recently filmed an Abstract Art course and a Tree-painting course. See highlights below and click on the link to access the course!
