Whether she is drawing inspiration from her home province of Alberta or across the breadth of Canada, Madeleine Bellmond’s choice of mediums is almost as varied as her subject matter. During a lifetime of experimentation and expansion of her artistic limits, Bellmond has worked in oils, watercolour, gouache and acrylics, as well as winning numerous awards for her unique fabric creations. One point that remains constant, however, is Bellmond’s desire to illicit a happy and positive response from her viewers.
