Madeleine is a newcomer to the Wessex Sculptors group, and is really enjoying its collaborative, supportive and friendly atmosphere. She has been making art informally all her life, and studied art at an adult college up to degree level in 2012.
She works across a variety of media including textiles and print, sculpture and drawing, watercolour and acrylic. Her recent sculptural practice draws on her childhood experience of making papier maché puppets. She has become fascinated by paper and is discovering its many fine qualities as a sculptural medium, although realizing that papier maché is not a material for work to be displayed outdoors!
She loves the way that drawing and colour can be incorporated into the process. Her work is influenced by memory, stories and ideas. It is light, experimental and playful, letting the material dictate the final result.
