Hi there. I'm Adrianne. Welcome to my space! I'm an abstract and impressionist painter living in Barbados (you can find it a little east of the Caribbean island chain).
I really can't pin-point exactly when I knew that I wanted to pursue an artistic career, I like to think that the genesis of my interest in art came out of a stubborn determination at a very young age to just colour inside of the lines!
My medium of choice is acrylic paints. I first started using them around 2006/2007, a year or so after starting out on gouache in art class. I can’t remember how I felt about acrylics at the time... I just know that I was more than happy to finally leave gouache behind. What I do remember was the first time I painted on canvas in 2009. It was THE best experience. I was actually slightly appalled by paper after it.
I have always had a great interest in interior design, even the hand-drafting, and after finishing secondary school in 2011, I decided to step outside of the Sims world and went on to take an interior decorating course at the Barbados Community College. I've been a certified Interior Decorator since 2014.
In the summer of 2015, I married my best friend, who is turning out to make a pretty great sidekick to this art show. Mind you, he's not very artistically-inclined, but he makes a great editor, assistant mural painter and wall for bouncing ideas off! Together, we are raising our beautiful baby girl. So, I guess that makes me a wife and a momma, too!
In my free time, I like to paint and plan out new projects, that I either never finish or never get around to. I'm aiming to change that this year. Ha!
If you need me, I'll be at my desk day-dreaming or running around after this way-too-quickly growing baby...
