Maddie launched her own business, Mook buttons, after graduating from Falmouth College of Art with a BA in Fine Arts (sculpture). With the help of The Prince's Trust she specialised in the manufacture of cast resin buttons (August 2000). This has now expanded in product range to include cufflinks and jewellery (2004).
Though she still engages in design work (maddie moo designs), she has moved over into sales and marketing management in line with her eco-values and interest in organics (skin care products). (2011)
