Madison L’Insalata is graduate of LaGuardia High School and NYU Tisch, with a degree in Acting and Journalism. A native Staten Islander (and the current Miss Staten Island), she has always been interested in the culture of this forgotten borough and is excited to be exploring this with Galamad through some art. Currently, Madison is an auditioning actor as well as an acting, voice, and musical theatre teacher with Staten Island Dance and Arts Center, Mrs. Rosemary’s, and Sundog. Madison has also spent time as assistant to Ben Hartley with The Broadway Experience and as a guest teacher with the St. George Theatre Outreach Program. Recent projects include the “Love/Sick” and “Romeo and Juliet” at NYU, the 7x7 Festival at The Tank, the St. George Christmas Show, and Giving Up The Ghost, a devised piece with the Experimental Theatre Wing.
Lea Simoniello is a painter from Staten Island, NYC. She is a recent graduate from The Cooper Union where she received her Bachelors of Fine Arts. She attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia for high school, and recently finished her first artist residency at The Ox-Bow School of Art, where she focused on garment making and performative art. She has spent seven years teaching art to kids and adults of all ages at Staten Island Dance and Art Center. When she is not surrounding herself with art, she is playing and watching soccer, which she uses as a common theme throughout her work. She uses her time to create work and experiment with materials in her studio in Staten Island.
