About

Madison is an artist native to Texas and currently living in Brisbane, Australia. Her love of science and nature began at a young age when she would spend hours in the exhibits of The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois. That passion grew through out the years and drove her to move to the Pacific Northwest to receive a B.S. in Conservation and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Washington. She then went on to complete the Natural Science Illustration Program at the University of Washington and graduated as a certified Scientific Illustrator in June of 2016.

Art as Activism

Since graduating, Madison has continued to pursue Natural Science Illustration and makes it her purpose to create art that captures the beauty of the natural world and conveys her love of the subject to others. Recent political events and shifts in the opinions on climate change by many world leaders have inspired Madison to create art as activism. She feels that it is her duty as an artist and conservationist to bring attention to important conservation efforts and to inspire the public to protect the natural world. She hopes that those who view her art are inspired to create a stronger connection to the environment around them and ultimately become more aware of the importance of preserving the planet's wildlife.
