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 includes completion of her BFA from U.B.C. Okanagan. This artist is always attempting new ways to express her ideas, hence a vision constantly challenged.
Madelyn's work is nature based, most often with highly textured and tactile surfaces, such as those seen in the natural world. Random, found objects, which symbolize all forms of life are at times adhered to the wood matrix, requiring close scrutiny of that surface. Madelyn expresses the idea of humanity and nature as sharing the same spaces. Her conclusive intent is to offer the viewer a more poignant awareness of nature and our connection with it. This artist can be found in her home studio on most days of the year.
