Preforming Arts for Children
Adrienne showed artistic promise even as a child. She enrolled in Kennesaw State University's Adult Continuing Education Art courses at the age of eight....and excelled! Her interest in painting and drawing was peaked further when she focused on her skills while attending high school. Under the watchful eye of a very dedicated instructor, her talent flourished.
During college, when she wasn't in class she was an apprentice to Mike Shepard, a master muralist and decorative painter. Her initial travels took her throughout the southeast.
After graduating from Kennesaw State University with a B.A. in the Arts, she sought a creative outlet and a future career path.
Adrienne traveled to Europe in 2001. Spending over a month in Paris, Lausanne, Florence, and Rome, she ventured out on a self guided study in art, architecture, design, and history.
For two years she was the sole understudy to Internationally acclaimed artist Ford Smith and traveled to the New York Art Expo to represent his works.
Adrienne has over eighteen years of design and artistic painting experience. Her works, both decorative and artistic, span nationally and internationally. She works primarily on residential projects. Adrienne's work can be found in the homes of art collectors, professional athletes, prominent musicians, artists, tv personalities, producers, and actors across the country.
In her spare time, Adrienne enjoys competitive hunter/jumper horseback riding, painting, music, and traveling with her husband, professional rock musician, Mike Rodden.
