Artistry by Adonna
My love of art began in high school. In my junior year, I studied Commercial Art, and instantly knew that art was the career for me. After school, I spent 16 years in the field of advertising and marketing, working for small, family – owned advertising agencies in Northern Kentucky and New Jersey. I moved to the west coast in 1998, and love the access to open trails, the mountainous views, and beaches so close to home.
I have recently leaped back into painting, working mostly in mixed media. My mission is to create art that inspires and uplifts people – to invite color into their space and joy into their heart. I hope you enjoy my work. Take a peek around, and if you feel so inclined, stop in at Studio #3, drop me a line……or hey, follow me on social media.

“Momentary Contact” – A call to the Heart
When you hear a call from your heart to go back to what you love, you have no choice but to answer those whispers of the heart, and leap…trusting the process, and growing those wings on the way down! When I grab an empty canvas, close the door of my studio, and invite creativity in, magic seems to happen. Sometimes that magic happens very quickly, and other times I feel like all the layers of the paint, the paper, or whatever medium I have chosen that day needs to be worked, shifted around, and re-worked.
And as long as I can surrender to whatever happens on that canvas, the phases of “great”, to “oh no….it went all ugly on me”….to “Oh, there it is!”, I can leave that space content. Painting has given me a sense of renewal, and has offered me hope and healing. I feel empowered and in a peaceful place of JOY when a piece is completed.
