Madeleine Faust


Madeleine Faust, a native of New Orleans, has been working as a professional artist for over 35 years. She received her first large commission while still an undergraduate BFA candidate in Painting, Drawing and Sculpture at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. After graduating with a Master’s Degree from Tulane University in sculpture, she opened a studio and began to pursue a serious career in fine art.

Locally, the studio’s business has accommodated large scale public, private, and commercial commissions by the French Market Corporation, The Mid-City Neighborhood Association, St. Joseph the Worker catholic church in Marrero, LA, St. Andrew the Apostle Episcopal church in Algiers, the American Can Company historic restoration in New Orleans, Café East in Metairie, Sake Café in Covington, LA, and Blue Plate Artist Lofts, an historic restoration in New Orleans.

Madeleine promotes her design skills actively and works closely together with local interior decorators and has had collaborations with Judy Girod of New York, and Gayle Adams Designs in Harahan, LA. Her work of intricate metal and ceramic window treatments, furniture, and other interior accents are now in numerous homes, offices, and restaurants in the Greater New Orleans area. In addition to her commercial interior works, Madeleine also produces portrait sculpture and pet portrait urns for individual collectors.

She has exhibited extensively, locally, nationally, and internationally in Hamburg, Germany; Sardinia Greece; and London, England. Her work has been displayed in a number of museums including:
