Madeleine Lamont received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from York University in Toronto; and a Commercial Art and Design diploma from Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada.
She has exhibited her work in museums and galleries both nationally (in Canada) and internationally and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Arts Council. She has received public commissions from the Art on Public Lands, the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington and the Koffler Gallery in Toronto. More recently her work was purchased by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Canada for the new NATO Chancery Building in Brussels, Belgium. Her paintings have also been featured by Canadian designer Brian Gluckstein in the Princess Margaret Lottery Grand Prize Showhome.
Her work has been published in notable art and design publications such as Canadian House and Home, Style at Home, C Magazine and the Globe and Mail; and has been written about and reviewed by many influential art writers and critics in Canada, including Daniel Baird, Gary Michael Dault, Claire Christy, Sylvie Fortin and Peter Goddard. Goddard described Lamont's paintings as "great romantic gestures... Her aim to piece together an organic beauty in a fleeting psychological moment is done so sumptuously". Baird described her large canvases as "luxuriant and expressive" and her miniatures as "pristine and lyrical."Madeleine Lamont had had over 25 solo exhibitions in private galleries and art institutions; and her work is in collections throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia. Lamont has been a founding member of several art collectives such as Farrago, The Red Head Gallery and The House Project.
