Mady’s paintings have always been about texture and pattern, a task she accomplishes by using gestural brushstrokes and impastos. Her digital work created in the vector based program Illustrator is inherently flat. She incorporates her photographs from her travels and creates patterns from various sources such as native fabric design or pottery. Color in both her paintings and digital work is the core around which her dialog begins.
