Check out Maddie Maxey’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Maddie Maxey.

Maddie, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My voyage started on my journey to California in 2015. I moved to California for a job opportunity on a leap of faith, bringing nothing with me except for the clothes that fit in my car. I started life over as I knew it. I started my days in Los Angeles near Culver City and eventually found my home in the Inland Empire. The growth I’ve gone through, the lessons I’ve learned, the places I’ve gone, and the people I’ve met; I could have never imaged how much my life would change. My move to California allowed my crafts to see new light, but most importantly it allowed me to develop into the strong, beautiful woman that I am today.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
It’s hard to classify my art as one medium. I love to create in a multitude of ways. I model (first and foremost) and I’ve used my work in modeling to start to open doors in my other interests including, sketching, writing, singing, playing music, and dancing. I inspire to do it all. I love to take advantage of moments and whatever I’m feeling in the moment is how I react with a form of art. I do all of these things because they give me peace, and I hope people can watch my journey of self-love through my art and know that they too can find peace and love in their own journey.

Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
Yes. I don’t think an “artist” in any medium is just an “artist” anymore. It’s not just about putting pen to paper, or your lyrics, or your dance moves, etc.; because of social media and its vast reach … the world is watching. I feel as though, as an artist you have an obligation to live your complete truth and stay relevant in the world around you. The natural disasters, the politics, the beauties, and the fears of the world can all help define your work and create mediums or art that reach the masses. I am focused on continuing to work on myself mentally, physically, and spiritually day in and day out, which will allow my creative spaces in my modeling, sketching, music, and dance to really transcend and touch people globally in any way that is needed.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I do have a fashion show for Unique Week on Friday, April 12, 2019 in Denver, CO that I am walking in, but for now, people may find my work through my journey on Instagram @_maddiemaxey. People can also support my work through following my journey, collaborating with me, and supporting me through the growth.
