Madeleine Stamer is a Melbourne illustrator, exhibiting artist, visual arts teacher and mother. Madeleine’s entrepreneurial spirit has seen her translate her work into beautiful and bold designs such as prints, objects and jewellery from her design studio Little Circus.
Her unmistakable works draw inspiration from Mexican folk art, nature, old school tattoos, 70′s design and the natural world around her. Her designs comprise of gentle yet slightly surreal imagery that delivers an edgy punch. Madeleine’s folk infused style has been described as captivating meditations on life and death, nature and culture. Part tattoo, part Australiana, part pattern, her works take the eye on an excursion along a decorative, dark and highly idiosyncratic line.
