Drawn to Fashion

I am very drawn to fashion. My work is inspired by the beauty of the female form, but also encompasses flowers, nature and animals. I am foremost an illustrator, with technique grounded in anatomy and the use of light and shadow to indicate the form. I prefer old school fashion sensibility, mixing graphite and white washes or using silverpoint. I am skilled in watercolors, acrylic, silk painting and three dimensional sculpture in fabric and clay. I enjoy bridal illustration commissions as I love to capture the essence of the bride on her day. Recently I published my book, Black and White: The fashion drawings of Mart Madison, which showcases my series of distinctive chalk drawings on black paper, exploring the negative space and celebrating the unique quality of black and white in fashion. If you need wedding invitation designs, editorial fashion boards and greeting cards as well as backdrops for fashion events, I am happy to supply sample sketches. All images are subject to copyright.
