Meet Madison.

A marine scientist sharing her love of the ocean and hoping to bring awareness to important conservation issues via her marine and nature inspired art.

About the Artist

Hi, I’m Madison Mueller. I am a marine scientist and a marine watercolour artist. I love being able to combine these two vastly different backgrounds to help conserve and protect our beautiful oceans.

I have worked as a marine scientist in many different locations across Australia.
From working with Pearl oysters in the remote North-West of Australia, growing algae in Tropical North Queensland, surveying crown of thorn starfish populations on The Great Barrier Reef, to working in a marine laboratory for the Western Australian Museum. This has provided me with practical experiences of tackling some of the issues impacting the health of our oceans.
However, I believe that the only way to really make an impact and save our oceans is through bringing awareness to and educating EVERYONE on the importance of protecting our marine life and I hope to inspire others to love and appreciate the ocean just as much as me.
This is were my art comes into it!

“I love that I can use my art for conservation and hopefully make a positive impact along the way”

 

About the Art

I am largely a self-taught artist (apart from a high school art class that is).
I began experimenting with a range of different media, from acrylic paints, charcoal, graphite and pen. It wasn’t until I found watercolour that I really found my passion for art!
It took many years of self-teaching, patience and practice (lots and lots of practice) to finally find my style- the many layered, somewhat over exaggerated vibrantly coloured and detailed marine animals that I create today.
Mostly I love to paint my favourite creatures to show off the immense diversity of life in the oceans in a hope to inspire the same love and fascination of the ocean in others- the more people appreciate the natural world, the more inclined they will be to make positive changes to help it.
Other times I cannot help but think about all of the horrible things that us humans are doing to our environment and feel that I have to portray this sad reality; it’s not all beautiful whales and manta rays swimming happily through the ocean, instead it is plastics choking our oceans and marine life, shark nets aimlessly killing, over fishing etc.
Whatever it is I paint, I always hope that it may make a positive impact along the way.
