Madeleine Williamson Pires was educated in Scotland, where the rugged beauty of her natural surroundings inspired her drawings and paintings. With an ability to portray details beyond her years, she went on to do a degree in Fine Art at the University of the West of England. She has travelled extensively in Europe and the Middle East throughout her life, creating oil paintings that reflect the wonder and passion of an adventurous free spirit. She is now based near Liverpool, where she continues to develop her painting, from expressive landscapes to incomprehensible space scenes which are wild yet peaceful; sometimes realistic, sometimes abstract – or a mixture of the two. She also uses gold leaf, whose reflective aspects bring a multi-dimensional concept to her paintings.
Madeleine’s paintings are often described as being windows to other realms, through which viewers can explore and see new things. One owner of Madeleine’a art says that there is a sense of “meant to be” about these paintings, as if Madeleine is painting something that already exists, but is usually beyond our vision, focus or ability to express.
Madeleine is also a qualified teacher, plays the piano and speaks four foreign languages.
