Madeleine is a visual artist who studied painting at Edinburgh College of Art. Her practice is rooted in drawing, seeing it as another form of thinking and a great way to play, explore and process emotions. She joined the Starcatchers team in 2021 as Creative Play Assistant, supporting amazing projects such as Expecting Something at Wester Hailes. She strongly believes that artistic play encourages openness, inclusivity and sparks connections as well as to positively engage and enrich lives, especially for little ones and their parents.
