Rock Hill, SC
Madie was born in Argentina. She has lived in Rome, Italy. In United States she lived in Rhode Island, New Jersey, Texas, Arizona and currently in South Carolina. But she has also lived several years in Venezuela and Uruguay.
Since Madie was a little girl she wanted to play with color pencils… She drew little girl faces, doggies and clowns… later on she did some still life and landscapes but it wasn’t until she was an adult, a hard working single mother when she decided to do something about her passion for colors.
Madie joined art workshops, took some drawing classes and got involved in every painting activity she could in the different countries where she lived. She even had the opportunity to participate in several exhibitions and won a price for an oil painting that was her true creation. called “Gracias a la Vida” that translates “Thanks to Life”. In that painting she told her story….
She always did oils, sometimes pastels but had in mind to, someday, try watercolors…. And she did… not only she tried but she embraced it and it has become her passion.
Most of these paintings are sceneries from Uruguay, South America, where she lived for a period of eight years before moving to Rock Hill.
