AD Maddox has traveled from the rivers of her native Tennessee to the rivers of the world. Her early childhood creative medium was dirt, water, sticks and rocks. As an active creative child she was experiencing the beginnings of an artist attracted to mixed media.
An avid fly fisherwoman, she has translated her passion for beauty of the trout fish and poetry of fly-fishing into her art. With materials like acrylics, oils, gel medium, charcoals, canvas, wood and metal, she fashions paintings, furniture and a variety of functional objects in her energetic and unique style using carving and bold painting techniques. She counts clients far and wide who are attracted to what ADís creative focus can produce.
ďI love to build something that moves me. Iím challenged by the simplicity of one subject as my main focus and trout is my most recent passion. During my hours fishing, time disappears. I am experiencing a bit of Heaven. I love living those moments and want to put them in my art. I feel I was put here to fish and paint.Ē
After studying Sports Medicine at the University of Colorado AD realized it was art that drove her and she missed the connection with nature that art gave her. She missed capturing the beauty of a moment and sharing it through art.
She attended the Portfolio Center in Atlanta, Georgia and worked under internationally renowned artists Kamy, Lee White, and Flournoy Holmes.
ADís life trek led her to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and a period of intense creativity. All her work is imbued with western sass, her own signature style.
ADís REMOTE CONTROL POWER COMMAND MODULE BOX is a leather lined art piece designed to help keep track of the elusive remote and is a key creation in the AD MADDOX COLLECTION. Her trout and fly-fishing furniture and her marvelous, bold canvases are available at the galleries that represent her work.
