Nellie Madison


Nellie Madison calls herself a “colorist” rather than a painter because she focuses on splashes of color rather than lines and shapes. She and her husband farmed their land outside of Echo for decades until he was diagnosed with Alzheimers at an early age. She turned to art to help her cope.
