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 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!

I gave a running commentary while filming myself painting this tree, for the course mentioned above. Read overview of this course
