Maddie studied Art Foundation at Cumbria College of Art and Design then graduated from University of Central Lancashire with a BA (Hons) before completing a PGCE in Art & design in 2001 and forging a successful career in Arts Education.
Maddie’s unique and multi-layered paintings in acrylic and oil paints are evocative of the vibrant land and seascapes which inspire her. Originally from Scotland she lived in a beautiful area by the coast. Maddie’s childhood was largely spent by the sea; memories of beach walks, foraging in rock pools and countless holidays exploring the wilds of the highlands inspire her creative process.
Travel also plays a key role in Maddie’s practice and her paintings become a visual journey of these many wonderful experiences.
