Maddy is an artist who collects, arranges and writes about found materials. Collecting is a work of heart performed mostly in charity shops. Clothes, fruit, houseplants, knick-knacks, found pages and further miscellanea appear and reappear in ongoing arrangements and configurations. Recent projects have developed into video, bookworks, mood-boards, web pages and hand-held puzzles. Maddy is a lecturer in Contextual Practices at Plymouth College of Art.
