How did a Jersey girl become a desert dweller who walked away from a successful marketing career to pursue her passion for art? In Private Spaces, explore Madaras' inspiring and sometimes heart-wrenching life journey on the way to becoming one of the region’s most well-known and influential artists.
Private Spaces is also a 20-year retrospective of exquisitely reproduced paintings. The 150 images in the book begin with her first watercolors from the Bahamas and Greece, and continue with later work from her African sojourn and South Dakota Artist Rides. In her unique and colorful style, southwest landscapes, animals and florals are portrayed from 1992 to present, along with newer paintings that few have seen.
