This mural will be located at the Courtyard by Marriott, so what better way to start a Carolina Beach Vacation than with a mural that celebrates the "Best Day Ever".
Madeline Deiters- is known for her realistic large murals that capture the world with optimistic poise. Her bright, bold, high contrasting palette reflects her love of nature and the lens through which she sees the world. Across her huge canvases, Madeline’s paintings summon reflection, but also casts a vision for a hopeful future. She is self-taught and draws upon a range of influences including Realism era painters, other street artists, her diverse heritage and friendships, and traveling the National Parks from coast to coast. Madeline’s clients have included city governments, federal grants, and private business owners with budgets ranging up to $50,000. She has been featured in tv, print, magazines, and world-wide online publications. She is an advocate for the benefits of public art and is scheduled to hold several workshops for all ages this summer to generate and promote public art. Although currently living in Illinois, Madeline has a unique connection with North Carolina. During her early childhood, her father and family were stationed at Fort Bragg in which time they enjoyed the state's beautiful parks, mountains, and beaches.
Mural #12 will be installed at the Courtyard by Marriott located at 100 Charlotte Ave.
My first approach for a commissioned mural is one of discovery of the space and communication with the client. I seek out environmental, historical, or cultural rarities for potential emphasis in the design. Regardless of the subject material, I aspire the mural to be “effective”. Effective could mean anything from invoking a strong emotion to telling an entire story. My paintings have become an integral part of the community’s landscape, as well as a slice of a larger collection of murals. #9 I want to thank whoever chose the theme FUN & JOY! I was instantly inspired to reflect what I do when I am having fun and are joyful. I take a picture and hang that picture to remember the event. This is the basic concept for the initial space, but I would like to continue the theme down the wall as far as possible – to make a gallery wall. The background of the Polaroids is native flora of Carolina Beach. The current photos are placeholders; the subject matter within the Polaroids would highlight more local events and activities with gleeful faces.
