My name is Madison Etrela and I'm an amateur painter who paints for the simple sake of my passion for the craft. I am self-taught, and although I have received guidance and advice from professionals, I have had no training at all. My favorite medium is oil on stretched, boxed canvas, and I will paint anything that tickles my fancy. I've dabbled on and off in my early 20's very briefly starting with acrylics until I abandoned painting altogether.
When I started getting back into painting around 2010 I moved onto oils due to ease of freedom that i enjoy with the medium. I always have ideas ready to go. Most of my original works leaned very heavily towards pagan based ideas, but my recent works are moving more towards the Greek mythos due to my love of Greek mythology as a child (and still as an adult).
