The ocean and wildlife have been a source of inspiration and adventure for her. As a teenager, moving from London to the coast of Cornwall, she began to explore and develop a deeper appreciation for nature.
After completing a degree in humanities and writing her thesis on animal minds and behaviour, Maddy went on to work as the Hugo stand-in on Martin Scorsese's Hugo. She studied illustration with Chris Gilvan-Cartwright at The Phoenix Gallery, Brighton and then travelled internationally volunteering for animal rescue, wildlife and community projects. Maddy collected these experiences to turn into stories. She is currently writing a travel memoir about befriending fear and embracing adventure.
Her artwork has been influenced by Maori artists from New Zealand, indigenous art from Taiwan and street art across Asia, where she spent time exploring. She is working on her 1000 Rescue project, creating one thousand pieces of art to raise awareness of animal and wildlife rescue around the world.
Her daily life is a merging of her creativity, grounded in sustainability and aimed towards a healthier future for our global community.
