Born at Eggington near Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, the young Madeline grew up in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. She later lived in London, studied in Paris, and then with Stanhope FORBES in Newlyn and Samuel John Lamorna BIRCH at Lamorna. She did a drawing of Florence CARTER-WOOD, a friend and fellow student at the Forbes School.
In 1909 she exhibited a series of miniatures on ivory at NAG, and sold Pollie in 1909 and The Bargee’s Daughter there in 1910. The Lamorna Society records show that she worked in Lamorna in the 1920s and exhibited until 1931.
