Madelene´s resumé is extensive. She has worked with movies/TV such as Monika Z, Snabba cash and Äkta människor and advertisers such as Nivea, Loka, Kungsörnen, among others.

To be able to share my entire experience within movies and TV is to me very fun and rewarding.  Being a theatrical makeup artist differs quite a lot from a typical makeup artist-career, so it is important that the students get to take in this aspect as well. To work with film teams and shoots is incredibly fun and I feel that the students get more motivated to seek out these things after my lectures.
