Madalaine Blyth

Curriculum Manager for Art

Madalaine is Course Leader for Foundation Diploma and Curriculum Manager for Art, and also oversees our UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design (Fashion & Textiles).

Inspired by street style and runway couture, Madalaine’s degree in fashion paved the way for her own fashion illustration business, freelance projects, and private commissions, as well as her career in education. Published in urban Australian magazines and online zines, her work focuses on rendering textures and fabrics in lifelike forms. Since relocating to Plymouth from Sydney, Australia – via Brick Lane, London – she takes time out from her teaching and digital design work by putting pen to paper, and drawing creatively.

Madalaine has been teaching since 2011, and leading Pre-Degree level courses (in Australia) since 2013. She joined the team here in August 2015, and said of the university, “There’s a whole community and culture of learning here... you can just walk into a different studio and your whole direction may change – in a really fantastic way. You never know what’s going to be around the next corner – you might get a fresh perspective, or a new idea could crop up, or you’ll understand a mistake that you haven’t been able to resolve. Sometimes it’s completely unexpected, and that’s what’s so fun about it.”
