Hi ! :-)
Maddie Stratton (b.1991) is a figurative painter and illustrator from New Orleans, LA. She has been making art for as long as she can remember.
Her interests lie in the blurred boundaries of what it means to be human. She uses vibrant colors throughout her paintings in an attempt to homogenize the hierarchy of subject matter; the human subjects share the stage with the flora and fauna. Her paintings are derived from a patch-work of source materials, creating imaginative, everyday scenarios.
Maddie usually makes paintings in her studio at the Aquarium Gallery in the Bywater. In quarantine, She has set up an outdoor studio in her side yard where she is making smaller paintings and is often visited by cats, caterpillars and other bugs.
She is a proud NOCCA alum with a BFA from Pratt Institute.
