About me and mads & Moodle......

 


My name is Jen Bowes and I am a creative artistic stay at home mum to Madelyn, namesake of my business.

My background is artistic and after doing a degree at Norwich Art School in Visual Studies I came back down to London and managed to land myself a job working in the magical prop making department on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets at Leavesden Studios. I continued working as a prop maker and model maker for a few years working on a couple more Harry Potter films and a few other films. (See me on Imdb here) It was during this time that I learnt the skills I am now using to create the baby feet casts. The materials I use are the same as what are used for taking casts of actors faces and other body parts to create prosthetics. Since having Madelyn the time commitments that the film industry requires from you have meant that I have had to retire from it for a while but I wanted to continue doing something creative. So after moulding Maddy's feet for ourselves to treasure and a few 'mummy friends' baby's feet, I enjoyed it so much that Mads & Moodle was born.
