Madeline Coy

As California native, and local Santa Cruz artist, she experiences her world through multitude of mediums, her favorite being ink & charcoal illustrations, oil painting, writing, interior design, photography, and woodworking. Basically anything she can create with her own two hands is what gives life meaning and inspires her most. An outdoor enthusiast and animal lover, she derives the majority of her subject matter through her worldly interactions and observations, with a focus on form and essence of being. When not nose deep in a project, she can be found skating along East Cliff with her dog Jade, writing, dancing to live music, or competing in a fiery game of chess.
