This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Mount Kisco, New York, animal sculptor Madeleine Park was fond of playing with her many pets as a child. She attended the Emily Fowler School in Mount Kisco and then went to Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey, graduating in 1910.

She enrolled in the Art Students League in New York City, but her family made her quit because they disapproved of the Life Class with nude models. In 1913, she married Harold Park, also an artist, and they had a family which temporarily put her career on hold.

She took painting from George Barse in Katonah New York, and in 1928 went to Italy with the Barses, which gave her more exposure to sculpture. In Connecticut, she enrolled in the studio of A. Phimister Proctor, a renowned animal sculptor who encouraged her to work from life and not copy others.

Much of her subject matter came from visiting the circus, the first effort being an elephant she modeled from one named Cutie of Somer's Circus. She also got commissions for portraits of domestic pets, show dogs and horses.

In the late 1940s, she worked at Hunt's Circus and traveled to India to purchase wild animals for Charles Hunt, keeping one of the panthers she obtained for herself.

She became a regular exhibitor at the National Academy of Design and the National Sculpture Society, and in the 1930s was represented by the Argent Galleries of New York. She was included in the 1940 Whitney Museum National Sculpture Society Exhibition and in 1944 had a one-person exhibition at the J.B. Speed Memorial Museum.
