An interview with Madelyn Mulvaney, owner of the Luminous Elephant

Q. What is your greatest strength as an entrepreneur?
A. My greatest strength is my passion and belief in what I do and help people experience self-transformation through arts.

Thank you so much for bringing your creativity and colours to our Children’s Art Area. Our Apple Festival was a success and we are grateful for your awesome participation! Many thanks from all of us!

Maddie and her team were a great addition to our Bard Family Nights. Her craft ideas were quick and easy for the children and engaged our young patrons in the themes of the evening’s play. The Luminous Elephant area was abuzz with activity and excitement, priming the audience for a night of fun and laughter during the play.

Looking for a little magic or a happy place? The Luminous Elephant Arts Studio is all that and more. I met Madelyn Mulvaney, the lovely owner and creative mind behind this awesome little arts studio in a most serendipitous way. I have since visited her gorgeous space to let my own creative juices flow. She has classes for children and adults from photography to painting, and also offers birthday parties. Madelyn says it best: “Our studio is one of the happiest places around — magic happens here!”

We’ve discovered a place so special, we can’t stop thinking about it — and our little ones can’t stop talking about it. When in Vancouver with kids, be sure to pay a visit to The Luminous Elephant in Point Grey, where owner Madelyn has imagined a place for parents and children to connect and express themselves through art. Through workshops and classes, kids and their grownups can discover photography, painting, design, creative writing and more. At the heart of every class (among our fave offerings: How to Paint Your Dragon and Shine On Photography) is a focus on self-expression, thoughtfulness and pure joy. Call us smitten!
