    An Artist Speaks Season 5 Episode 4 with Guest Artist Madeline Fowler

    in Art

    Host Michael Harris interviews artist and nursing student Madeline Fowler.  

    Madeline Fowler was raised, for the majority of her life in a suburb of Kansas City, KS. Madeline discovered her love of color and art in high school where she took her first painting and drawing class as a junior. She has spent the last four years working to explore and refine her artistic style and ability.

    “I primarily focus on painting with oils. I really enjoy varying the surfaces on which I paint. I mainly do representational paintings in which I strive to incorporate a variety of color and value. My artwork is composed of a combination of many different kinds of brush strokes. Thick versus thin, soft versus sharp.... etc. These all work together to elicit emotion from the paintings.”

    Daisha started with a back-up dance career that’s spanned some of the largest urban hip-hop, pop, and R&B acts in recent memory– Rihanna, Diddy, Ryan Leslie, Letoya Lucket, Santigold, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott and Beyonce’ to name a few. However, after reaching the top of the working commercial dance world, her passion and vision to express herself as a performing artist hadn’t quite satisfied her own self-fulfillment. “Even before being on the road for so long, I envisioned an original live experience more theatrical and expressive than dance alone could reveal about me,” says Daisha. Her artistic presence is noticeable, and likable.

    Less you think this is the story of just another professional dancer wanting to be a pop-star, Daisha was trained as a classical pianist since the age of 5 and also participated in choirs throughout high school and college. “Music had always been an important part of my life, but dance became the perfect medium for exposing me to the professional music industry.”

    Daisha’s versatile nature and willingness to never limit her endeavors continues to land her a multitude of endless opportunities. She has landed roles on feature films such as, Step Up 2, Step up 3D, When in Rome and most recently VH1's original movie The Breaks.  She is also the co-founder of Daisha and Alicia Graf Arts Collective (aka D(n)A Arts), an initiative she and her sister Alicia Graf Mack created; committed to enriching lives through the arts.
