Jeanie Madsen is an activist for teens, curator and director of her Art Gallery and a fashion designer. Although Madsen attended a few classes at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) NYC, she is mainly considered a self taught designer. Before attending any design class she made her first dress 30 years ago from a sheet. "I was inspired by a dress I saw in a store window on middle neck boulevard in Great Neck, Long Island. Knowing there was a sewing machine at my mothers apartment, I just went straight to the closet grabbed a sheet and cut and sew'd a white tennis dress, with out a pattern.

Several years later Madsen started her fashion career in the garment industry in NYC in a buying office, then wholesale and retail. She later became a stylist and wardrobe costumer for print, film and theater. But it wasn't until Madsen moved to Santa Monica after her mother passed away, at 36, that she would become a fashion designer. She has been designing one of a kind fashions for 12 years in Santa Monica.

Jeanie's designs can only be found in her "wearable art' boutique found at Jeanie Madsen Gallery year round. Her designs are described as funky elegance and evolve as her lifestyle evolves. Her inspiration is Coco Chanel.
