Madelyn is a long time resident of the West Kelowna B.C., Canada area. During that time, and over a lifetime, the driving force of creativity has gained in strength and meaning. She has a long history of meeting the many challenges of making art, which include a later in life completion of her BFA. This artist is always attempting new ways to express her ideas, hence a vision constantly challenged. .

Madelyn's passionately driven work has a focus on highly textured and tactile surfaces, such as those seen in the natural world. The focus of her ideas are always nature based. Random, found objects, which symbolize all forms of life are adhered to the wood matrix. Madelyn expresses the idea of humanity and nature as sharing the same spaces. The matrix requires close scrutiny and investigation, for much is to be discovered on the surfaces. Her conclusive intent is to offer the viewer a more poignant awareness of nature and our connection with it.  This artist is happy creating in her home studio on most days of the year.
