Adele specializes in portraits, not only of 4-legged animals, but also the 2-legged kind ~ the human form.
Her figure study, “Solitude” was chosen for the wine label of Cabernet Sauvignon in 2012 for the Cauble Creek Vineyard. They even named the wine after her!
As an equine artist, she is mentored by John Fawcett, the 2008 Western Artist of the Year, as well as Leslie Hudson-Tolles, locally. When it comes to her animal portraits, she believes that “Everything you need to know about an animal is in its eyes – they are the windows.”
She will be presenting pastel studies of dogs, cats and horses and talk about the psychology of surviving a negative critique.
