Madeleine Leisk

Hiya, I am a Canadian illustrator based in Edinburgh, Scotland. My work is often informed by my background in art history and plays with inspirations from early modern print culture and pop art. Past illustration projects have included: editorial illustration, educational resources, community maps, a festival programme, and promotional materials for tourism and events.


At the heart of my business is an ethos of community support. I offer reduced rates to charitable organisations and make regular monthly donations to five charitable organisations on behalf of my business (supporting LGBTQIA+ rights and refugee services in Scotland and beyond). I am also a part of the Somewhere Rainbow Enterprise Network.

Selected clients include: Historic Environment Scotland, Somewhere: for us, LGBT Health and Wellbeing, Anne Lister Tours, Waverley Care and Forth Environment Link.
