Madonna Staunton

Madonna Staunton (1938-2019) was an artist and poet who lived and worked in Brisbane. Very early in her life, Staunton was encouraged to make art by her mother, who was also a painter and poet of repute. Her father was a book trader, and she grew up in his store surrounded by literature. Her own studies of music and oriental philosophy, and her immersion in writing, particularly poetry, broadened her creative development.
