Alumni Spotlight: Madeleine Patton (BFA ’16)

An avid writer and animator, alumna Madeleine Patton started her own original animated series on YouTube at the age of 12. When she was 14 years old, she wrote a book about a young, limping lioness in the wild who felt romantic love with her best friend.

After studying screenwriting at York, Madeleine decided to revisit the story she had written as a teenager and reimagine it as an animated series and her LGBTQ+ web series My Pride was born.

Learn more about her journey since graduating from York and creating her animated web series My Pride.
