Peter & Madeline Powell

Project Description



Artists CV

Peter and Madeline Powell are husband and wife photorealist painters who have wed painting to the sensual memories of one of childhood’s most pleasurable activities: eating candy. The joy of smelling, touching and tasting sweets comes through their detailed oil paintings of piles of lollipops, Hershey Kisses, Bazooka bubble gum and M&M’s. Of course, the Powells have covered other subjects, most notably crayons, toys, cars, even florals and an occasional landscape.

The Powells’ work is part of many private and corporate art collections including A&M Records, Los Angeles, CA; BMW North America, Atlanta, GA; OPI, Beverly Hills, CA; COSBAR, Aspen, CO; Robert McKay Corporate Collection, San Diego, CA; and Fudgie Bear Corporation, WI. The couple resides in Hawaii.
