Onward Motivational Studio of ART
Established in Brisbane, Australia in 2004 by
Director Madeleine Ekeblad, OMSA operated
as a very successful tutorial and motivational
art school for aspiring artists for the next nine years.
In addition to running the school Madeleine helped promote
45 artists with 3 art exhibitions a year. 2 of which were held at
Brisbane's Parliament House Annex.
She also conducted numerous Motivational Workshops
for the corporate sector.
By 2013 Madeleine had herself become a successful international
artist and she decided to close the school in order
to allow her time to pursue her own career.
OMSA remained operating as a gallery on Macleay Island, Australia.
In 2017, due to the increasing number of her overseas exhibitions in S.E. Asia,
Maddi made the decision to relocate to Penang Island in Malaysia in order
to be closer to the action. Naturally her OMSA Studio and Gallery had to
move with her and was re-established at Hillside, Penang, Malaysia.
OMSA still supplies support for emerging artists, regularly taking
examples of their work to exhibit in Hong Kong and China
and Madeleine is still conducting motivational workshops.
Her latest venture is Directing a film which is being Produced by 72 Dragons Productions for entry into the famous Cannes Film Festival in May 2018.
