I stumbled here from Meredith Dillman's posting in LiveJournal.
What a wonderful place filled with amazing people!
About Me: I am Madeline Carol Matz, a self-representing artist .
My head bubbles with thoughts and images and my artworks are what spill out. Humanimals, fantastical creatures, fairies, wizards, and vintage portraits and nudes worked in water media, ink, acrylic, and oils are the result.
My style is somewhat antiquated having been influenced strongly by illustrators and comic artists as well as the usual bunch of magnificent dead masters (see Heroes below).
I invite you to mop them all up and wring them out into your life to make your surroundings a bit pleasanter, or at least make it a much more interesting place to inhabit. Hopefully, my surge of creative effusion won’t make too much of a mess on the kitchen floor.
You can find my original work on in my eBay Store and prints at ImageKind.
Other than my own walls, my work has been displayed at the Art Institute of Chicago, The Wyler Children's Hospital, and The Museum of Science and Industry. I have designed for many theater and dance companies, and private clients and I have sold my paintings to clients coast to coast and around the world.
I am somewhere north of drinking age and south of death, living in the oak forests of the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, our four dogs and our cat in a small house my husband and I built with our own hands.
I am a registered business with the state of Missouri.
