~ Maddy and Madam ~
At the start of 2021, Maddy made the decision to pursue her passion. Not only this, but after moving in with her grandparents, she discovered a love for animals, especially that of their Jack Russell doggo, Madam.
Growing up, Maddy was unsure about animals and was afraid of dogs. Then, in 2021, she moved in with her grandparents and their dog, Madam. She met Madam when she was only a pup almost six years ago, and now, they are closer than ever.
Being around Madam has helped Maddy immensely. After returning home from a long day, Madam always excitedly greets her. Being met by a bubbly pup always brightens her day. They work off of each other’s energy, bringing out the best in one another.
No matter what, Madam can always make Maddy smile. If she’s been having a challenging day or is feeling upset, Madam is right there for her. They love having cuddles together and just being in each other’s company. Not only this, Madam has a big personality for a small dog! From her playing to running around, she never fails to brighten Maddy’s day.
Because of the bond that Maddy and Madam have formed, she has been inspired to pursue art and even create pet portraits. Art has always been one of Maddy’s biggest passions. Whenever she is working on something, it gives her a sense of empowerment in being able to be vulnerable and explore. All of Maddy’s heart goes into each and every one of her pieces.
Maddy has always loved creating conceptual artworks that worked with feminist and body-positive themes. As her artistic journey progressed, she has now started creating pet portraits. Having Madam helped her realise how much a furry friend can mean. Not only this, but she began getting requests for portraits of people’s pets, whether for themselves or as a gift.
Having art as a way of expression means a lot to Maddy. Being able to work on something in her own time and that she has freedom to do what she wants. As well as this, this has allowed Maddy to be proud of herself and her work in doing something that she is incredibly passionate about. She knows that this is the path for her and that’s what keeps her motivated in pursuing her art.
The bond that Maddy and Madam have is truly special. They bring out the best in each other and share so much love. Not only this, but the happiness that creating art has also had a huge impact on Maddy. If you want to check out her art, or buy a commissioned piece or pet portrait, check out her pages now!
