Biography

     Madeline has been drawing, painting, potting, and photographing all of her life, but it was not until she and her husband bought a summer home in Maine in 1990 that she began her serious interest in and study of watercolor. She enjoys the challenges and surprises that watercolor brings, as well as the freshness and transparency of the medium and the white of the paper.

     She has studied with Frank Webb, Skip Lawrence, Judy Wagner, Tony Couch, Jean Grastorf, Linda Doll, Carolyn Gawarecki, Ted Nuttall, Janet and Steve Rogers, Jean Uhl Spicer, Jane Paul Angelhart, Mark Mahaffey, John Salminen, and Linda Baker. She enjoys both plein air (outdoor) and studio painting, and her favorite subjects run the gamut from Maine landscapes to informal children's portraits.

     Madeline is a Signature Member of both the Baltimore Watercolor Society (BWS) and Potomac Valley Watercolorists, and was a founding member of Gallery 302 in Bridgton, Maine. She exhibits both in Maryland and in Maine, and her work is in many private collections.

     Her numerous awards include "Best in Show" at the Western Maine Art Group Show in 2001, and Second Place for Painting and Photography at the 2007 Art in the Park. In 2005 she was chosen to design the t-shirt for Bridgton's Four on the Fourth Run. Her painting Cheers! was accepted into the prestigious BWS Mid-Atlantic Show in 2009, and her graphic, Summer in Bridgton, was voted to represent the area's 2009 Art in the Park on all posters, t-shirts, and advertising.

     In July 2011 and 2012, she won Second Place at the Annual Bridgton Art in the Park Show, and in the fall of 2011 she had a major solo exhibition of 39 floral and landscape paintings at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD. In February 2015, her work was featured at First Stage Gallery in Virginia. Her work can be seen in several Maine galleries, theatres, and restaurants. More recently she has begun teaching on a limited basis both in Maine and in Maryland.
