An artist and educator, Madeleine Kelly has judged numerous exhibitions. Her studio is in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and she often paints from local inspirations as well as those of her travels.
Madeleine believes art is passion, discovery, evolution and an endless journey and loves to explore the versatility of multiple mediums. Her greatest joys are playing with textures and color but she often works with neutral palettes for dramatic effect. Although her inspirational triggers are everywhere it is often the medium itself that drives her.
Although she never formally studied art, she continues to grow as an artist and has achieved her skills through workshops, museums, and demo presentations with such leading artists as Elizabeth Mowry, Rea Redifer, and Homer Johnson among others. Her works are displayed and admired in public and private collections around the world. Her paintings have been selected for various national and international juried exhibitions.
Recipient to numerous awards, among them the Helen Farr Sloan Award for the 2014 Philadelphia Water Color Society International Show and she is also a signature member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Society and Maryland Pastel Society.
She has been published in magazines and newspapers including a Philadelphia Inquirer feature July 2010; an American Artist magazine feature April 2010 -and the Philadelphia Stories magazine. Her artwork can be seen gracing the set of a just released feature 2013 indie film; “The Suspect”.
