Madeleine Stamer

Madeleine Stamer is a Melbourne illustrator, exhibiting artist, visual arts teacher and mother.

Madeleine’s entrepreneurial spirit has seen her translate her work into beautiful and bold designs such as prints, objects and jewellery from her design studio Little Circus.

Her unmistakable works draw inspiration from folk art, nature, old school tattoos, 70′s design and the natural world around her. Her designs comprise of gentle yet slightly surreal imagery that delivers an edgy punch. Madeleine’s folk infused style has been described as captivating meditations on life and death, nature and culture. Part tattoo, part Australiana, part pattern, her works take the eye on an excursion along a decorative, dark and highly idiosyncratic line.

 

About

During the 90's Madeleine Stamer studied Architectural Ceramics at Monash University. She later enrolled in a Master of Fine Art degree at Monash where she honed in on making large scale and highly decorative sculptural ceramic pieces. Armed with a passion for surface design, texture, colour, pattern and building upon layers Madeleine has since turned her attention to painting with traditional old school brush and inks. 

For the past 18 years Madeleine has worked part time as an Art educator working for prominent Melbourne schools. Madeleine balances family, exhibiting and creating small runs of limited edition and open edition prints, art pieces and collaborative projects from her home studio in the leafy suburbs of Melbourne. Madeleine's folk infused images display rich decorative line and bold pattern. Her work has been described as captivating meditations on life and death, nature and culture. Part tattoo, part Australiana, part pattern, Madeleine's works take the eye on an excursion along a decorative, dark and highly idiosyncratic line.
