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.
Madeleine has collaborated on small to large scale projects for various clients such as The AFL, Alannah & Madeline Foundation, The ANZ Bank, The Design Files, Gorman, Haymes Paint, Sportsgirl, Maddie Riewoldt Foundation, Third Drawer Down, The Meredith Music Festival, Officeworks, The Financial Review, The Readers Digest, The National Gallery of Victoria, The Women’s Weekly, The Blackeyed Susans and Walnut Shoes just to name a few.
Madeleine strangely prefers the Winter months best and you will often find her staring at birds from her kitchen window or attempting to draw them…
