Mado Todd-Morel is a Franco-American artist, born in Normandy, France. She earned her Bachelor’s DNAP, Art and Design degree at the Ecole Superieur d’Art et de Design of Reims, France. In 2015, she received her Master’s of Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design where she received a merit scholarship. In addition, she studied Urban Sustainability Studies at Brown University. Merging art and environmental studies, she was part of the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), granted by the U.S. National Science Foundation. During her industrial design graduate studies, Todd-Morel kept painting and sculpting with glass. She worked for artist and glass master Toots Zynsky in Rhode Island. Other contemporary artists that inspired her include Anastasia Vasilakis, Goldie Poblador and Cris Gris. Her most recent solo exhibitions were “Eros is in the Tree” in Annapolis, MD (2014) and “Elle or Lui” in San Francisco (2016). She paints and sculpts with a poetic and delicate stroke, which can sometimes be praise to love and other times, chaos. Her work plays with nature’s beauty and eroticism with much intimacy.
