Madeline (Maddy) Tormoen grew up the middle child of a large family in the small town of Port Edwards, Wisconsin. Maddy’s mother is an artist, thus Maddy was exposed to various forms of art throughout her upbringing. Maddy achieved her master’s degree in counseling psychology (1987) and her doctorate degree in Organizational Leadership (2017). Previously an elite athlete, Maddy traveled the world running and biking during the early 1990s. After retiring from sport, Maddy worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor with adjudicated adolescents and convicted adults in incarcerated settings. Finding inspiration through her mother’s work, Maddy experiences paint as a playground, wherein Maddy and the paint mingle and join forces to convey passionate images for you to enjoy.
