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.
Read a question and answer interview about my artistic process and inspiration:
Here I answer questions about the materials I use, my style, process and career in art.
“You are not a performer of your abilities, but a servant with permission to bless people.”
- (Martin Schleske, The Sound of Life’s Unspeakable Beauty)
Like my Facebook page to interact with me. You can participate in my various musings, reflect upon quotes about art/music and ponder my “thoughts of the day”. You can comment on works in progress, be the first to know about new projects and even help me give titles to new paintings!
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.
