Welcome to the art of Madeleine Pires – have a wonderful time exploring this site!

Why MFaithArt?

My first name is Madeleine: my middle name is Faith. And as you will see, other interpretations of the word “faith” run throughout my art.

A “Called” Artist

I believe my purpose is to reveal and express beauty and truth through art and music. As well as painting and drawing, I play the piano and write songs. These two art forms constantly fuel and complement each other. To me, artistic and musical gifts are sacred and intended to be cherished, nurtured and developed in a life-giving way, not selfishly but as a way of exploring what it means to be human and experiencing moments of profound resonance with other people.

“You are not a performer of your abilities, but a servant with permission to bless people.”

Teaching

I’m a qualified teacher – I don’t spend my life marooned in my studio! I am first of all someone who loves learning and discovering new things (and new aspects of things I thought I knew!). I enjoy spending time interacting with other people who also want to learn, share and explore. Being a teacher forces me to articulate concepts in multiple ways, to listen well, and to understand things more deeply. I love connecting with people through art.

I write and lead art courses at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, and at the Reader, Calderstones, through Liverpool-based art organisation Dot-Art
