Madeleine Wood Studios

Map #16
There are two artists here.

Madeleine Wood was born and raised in BC with an aptitude for drawing, that developed into a fierce desire to become a painter. Her formal education at Emily Carr and Concordia Universities enabled her to establish her studio practice in Vancouver and later in Fanny Bay where she feels a deeper connection to nature. The slowness of painting allows her to fully embody her relationship with the world around her and communicate this with you. Details often overlooked in life can be profound and nuanced. She’s learned to trust what attracts her eye and magnifies them to encourage observation and reflection. Her realist visual language comes naturally from a classical upbringing, while questioning tradition through contemporary compositions. She exhibits regularly in galleries and welcomes commissioned work.

Don Cunningham is a retired art teacher and wood worker, with more time to devote to painting. Most of his work has been abstract and focused on process. His most recent “Long Beach” series are colour studies that explore the changing light conditions of surf and sky in a direct and simple manner. As a woodworker, he creates elegantly designed pieces, from charcuterie boards to cabinets in locally sourced wood: arbutus, yellow cedar, western maple, etc.
