Madeleine Noonie Barker
Concept Artist - Character Specialist
London, United Kingdom

Hey there! I’m Madeleine, a concept artist based in the UK. I have a BA first class honours degree in Concept Art, and have been trained by industry professionals.

My specialism is my eye for ornate detail and narrative: especially in costume and prop/set design. You can tell the backstory of a person through what they carry, the condition of their clothes and their sense of style- and it's the same for every prop and environment design, too! I feel that storytelling is an integral part to my design process.

If you’re interested in working with me I’d love to hear from you. However, please be advised that I'm currently studying for my Master's qualification (MA) in Concept Art and am occasionally unavailable. Feel free to send me a message via my contact page (or Artstation messages).
