About Photographer

Madeleine is a photographer and an artist, whose ability to capture the magic of light in the surrounding nature, enables her to create a unique collection of Irish landscape and seascape photographs and paintings. Her main inspiration and motivation lie in the many forms of beauty offered by nature, which she finds in abundance in the South West of Ireland. Many of her days are spent in the Irish wilderness, exploring the vivid landscape as the sun rises and sets, and under clear nights, that reveal the beauty of the Milky Way.
