ARTIST PROFILE – Madelaine Last

Madelaine Last Metal Artist

Madelaine is an emerging artist working primarily in recycled steel materials. She is qualified Heavy Vehicle Mechanic and through her trade has learnt various welding and fabrication techniques for work purposes. Madelaine has always had creative instinct, but has only recently discovered her ability to express artistic vision through her trade skills.

Madelaine was born and raised in the small town of Swifts Creek, Victoria. After finishing year 12 VCE she moved to Melbourne to attend Deakin University and study a double degree of Science and Arts, majoring in Biology and Journalism. During her second year of study, she made the decision that university was not suited to her and decided to complete an apprenticeship as a mechanic. Madelaine and her partner moved back to the countryside and relocated to Taggerty, Victoria for several years where Madelaine has been able to spend time turning farm scrap into art pieces. She has only recently returned to her hometown of Swifts Creek, where she will be working on her art full time.
