About Me and Mads & Moodle…….
My name is Jen Maslin and I am a creative artistic mum to two children. Madelyn who is five and is the namesake of my business and Grayson who is two. I have been running Mads & Moodle for nearly five years and feel so lucky and privileged to have met and created work for so many lovely families so far.
My background is in fine Art and after completing a BA honors degree at Norwich Art School in Visual Studies, I returned back down to London and managed to land myself a job working in the magical prop making department on Harry Potter. I continued working as a prop maker and model maker for a few years working on a few more Harry Potter films and some other feature films including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and many more. You can see me on Imdb here to find out more about my film career. 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 that are used for taking casts of actors faces and other body parts to create prosthetic masks and make up pieces. After having my daughter 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 and casting Madelyn's feet as a baby for ourselves to treasure I decided to create a business that could offer this service to other new parents and so Mads & Moodle was born.
