About the artist

In 1991 Madeleine was awarded a long-term scholarship to study Fine Art in Florence, Italy, at the Scuola di Arte Grafica, Il Bissonte. From 2002-2010, Madeleine studied classical and academic painting in Florence at various private academies and studios. Madeleine completed an MA in Philosophy at the University of Malta in 2014. Her thesis title was 'The Concept of Beauty in 19th Century Maltese Painting'.

She was Director of Atelier Madeleine Gera in Valletta, an artist's studio dedicated to the instruction of portrait painting and figurative academic painting within the classical tradition. In 2007 she worked as a consultant for Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti on the Edward Caruana Dingli Exhibition held at the Presidents Palace, Valletta.
