She was inspired by what she learned through ancestral skills to enter into a conversation with the landscape around her by being able to feel and sense all that was around her.
She grew up in the rockies of Colorado and now lives in Encinitas, CA where she spends her time teaching, paint, writing, and surfing. Madelyn is committed to empowering people through their own innate creativity and her dream is to make a pair of sandals that is made out of materials that are beautiful and of benefit to the natural world, the people that make them, and the people that wear them.
