After recovering from a life altering illness in my early thirties, my entire being was transformed.  I appreciated life and could see the world around me in new and wonderful ways.  The grass is greener.  Flowers are more fragrant and spectacular. The sky and every imaginable cloud are bluer and more mysterious.  And I have an urgency to share my vision of nature's beauty. 

 My paintings run the gamut from realistic to abstraction. Yet all of them are painted with energy, and a sensitivity to color.  Yes, color, and the wonders of the world.  Landscapes, flowers, and the human body are my subjects.  I hope the viewers of my art will feel my “Joy.”

 In the past 7 years my passion has been Plein Air painting.  I am stimulated by the elements.  The heat of the sun, gentle breezes, and yes, sometimes a drizzle or two are a challenge.  My light source, the sun, is constantly rearranging colors, contrast, and composition. There seems to be a constant catching up, which oddly, satisfies my personality.



 Education and professional experience:

Adrienne received a BFA in Art Education from the University of Illinois, Champaign, Illinois, and through the years has studied extensively with some of the most talented artists in the fields of acrylic and watercolor painting, etching, and mixed media.  She has taught art classes in Chicagoland area venues since 1986 and also enjoys teaching  individuals privately.  In addition to serving for 23 years as a Board member at the Art Center of Highland Park, she was responsible for instituting the Recycled Art Sale at that institution.

 Adrienne exhibits her works in juried art shows throughout the United States.  She is an active member of the American Jewish Artist Club and enjoys sharing her experience and love of art with fellow members.
