"I really desire to awaken more awareness for our beautiful planet and caring for the natural resources. Nature is such a healer, and we need to step into stewardship for the land, the waters and creatures, to ensure we create a sustainable future...the Great Lakes are such incredible bodies of water, and we cannot afford taking them for granted!"
Bettina Madini is a contemporary European artist and designer who combines luscious color and expressive motion in her paintings. Born in Berlin, she spent time in the Corporate World before laying the groundwork for her artistic breakthrough in Luxembourg in 1992, when she joined the Conservatory of Music and, shortly after, the Ecole d’Art Contemporain. Bettina studied Fine Art in Luxembourg at the Ecole d'Art Contemporain with Jean-Marc Tosello, and in New York City at the National Academy of Fine Art and Design with Susan Shatter, Sharon Sprung, Henry Finckelstein and Wolf Kahn. Her search for expressive color and light has led her on a journey across different painting media that are universes to her.
She currently studies with Ronnie Landfield at the Art Students League in New York City. Bettina's body of work encompasses watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel and silk painting. In 2018, she launched her own line of Wearable Art labeled ‘Magical Bodies.’ She currently lives and works as an artist in Wisconsin's Great Lakes area. Bettina's paintings can be found in corporate and private collections in Europe, Australia, Canada, China and the United States.
