Brandon , Mississippi
Madeline did not seriously consider making art a career until she moved to Mississippi. She is constantly inspired by the creative, talented, innovative people she meets here.
"When I was growing up, creating anything was always a good time for me. I remember making beaded curtains for my bedroom door, hand-sewing pillows made from scrap fabric or clothes I had outgrown, and drawing or painting constantly. I was more into languages when I was a teenager, so I only took one art class in high school to complete my credits. When I got to college, I really wanted to take Color Theory, which was a 300 level class, so I had to take other classes. I really ended up falling in love with experimenting with different techniques and materials when I took classes taught by Anne Herbert. I will be forever grateful to her for teaching me to never give up, in both the art process and in life."
