December 2018 First Friday Artist - Madeline Broom

Madeline Broom

About Madeline Broom

Madeline Broom spends her days in classrooms as a third year student at the University of Montana where she studies journalism, environmental studies and climate change. A photographer, Madeline considers herself a creative person. Outside the classroom she sought out new forms of self expression and she stumbled upon embroidery. Immediately, she took up a large project of embroidering her favorite poem – Wild Geese by Mary Oliver. After seeing her vision come to life she was instantly hooked.

In the last couple months embroidery has taken over all of Madeline’s free time. As a queer woman, Madeline is inspired by the beauty of women in all forms. As a visual person, she sees the beauty in the simple things which inspires her style of embroidery. She hopes her art can bring a little joy into the lives of those who see it as that is what it does for her.
