Adrienne, who describes herself as an experimental artist, uses a variety of mediums including water colour, acrylics, inks and mixed media.
For many years Adrienne has taken out major art awards across NSW, but she hasn’t always been a painter. As a young woman, Adrienne studied design, with major interests in silk screening, fabric design, mural work and ceramics. She later went on to design and print fabrics for boutiques and fashion designers.
On moving to Batemans Bay, she was instrumental in designing and constructing stage sets for the Bay Theatre Players as well as making many of their costumes. In 2003, Adrienne won a CAT (Canberra Area Theatre) Award for best set design for the play “The One Day of The Year.”
Adrienne has worn many hats throughout her artistic career; the most recent being the President of CABBI during 2016/17 and has been the Exhibition Convenor for the major CABBI Art Exhibition held in January each year.
She now teaches weekly classes in watercolour and acrylics and often runs weekend workshops in ink pouring.
Adrienne’s paintings will be on display at the Batemans Bay Library from Monday 5 March until Saturday 24 March.
The public are warmly welcomed to attend Adrienne’s floor talk on Tuesday 13 March at 5pm. Over a glass of wine and some nibbles, she will explain her journey of how she became the artist she is today.
This is a free event but bookings are essential. Please phone Batemans Bay Library on 44725850 to book in for this exciting event.
