Madeleine is a nineteen year old Liverpool based artist "studying/struggling through art foundation" at Manchester School of Art.

'I AM' is an ongoing autobiographical project, documenting Madeleine's existence through collage, photography, text and "probably too many pictures of Jane Birkin, if such a limit exists." The title is influenced by The Bell Jar, referencing, 'I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.’ Madeleine says, "I feel like the words of Sylvia Plath are all you need to capture what your messy head is trying to say."
