Tamara Natalie Madden Fund

Tamara Natalie Madden passed away Saturday, November 4th, just two weeks after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Living by the mantra “create as much as you can, while you can,” Tamara was a prolific artist.
 
Tamara discovered her passion for art in 1997, after a rare disease and kidney failure left her on dialysis. She credits art with sustaining her through this trying period of her life. She pursued art professionally, and had her first exhibition in 2001, the same year she received a kidney transplant from her brother. Since then, she has had numerous solo and group exhibitions nationwide and has been featured in numerous publications, including Upscale magazine, The Huffington Post and The New York Times. In 2014, MSNBC’s The Grio named her one of 40 black artists to watch. Tam leaves behind an impressive body of work.

No one is more affected by this sudden loss than her only child, Nini, a senior at Georgia Southern University who also works three jobs. Tam instilled in her daughter a drive to succeed, and Nini has found her passion: she is pursuing a degree in education with a minor in theater, and has just started her teaching program. As we all try to cope with this sudden loss, we ask that you please give what you can to support Nini through this difficult time.
