Born in 1969, Madeleine studied Fine Art and Illustration at Camberwell College of Art, London, and has achieved great success in both fields. Her illustrations, watercolours and paintings are well known and have been published and collected around the world. She works from her studio in London and has become one of Britain's best loved artists.
Madeleine also studied at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the Prince of Wales Drawing studio and her illustrations are informed by strong draughtsmanship. Madeleine writes and illustrates her own books such as the children’s classic Captain’s Purr and her recent books Birdsong and the follow up Chickens, Ducks and Geese published by Anova Publishing which have since become best sellers.
Her work has been championed by many including the National Trust, Cliveden and Highgrove and she has built a fast growing timeless brand with a widening range of products including ceramics, limited edition fine art prints, melamine, textile homeware, tinware, gift wrap, greeting cards, calendars and stationary.
