Adèle is primarily an acrylic painter. She also draws with oil pastels which allow her to work quickly with colour to express emotion, layer memories and blend the surfaces in a similar approach to her painting process. The difference is that when Adèle paints, the work evolves over weeks. Each time she enters the studio, from blank canvas to finishing stages, she empties her mind and only brings the mood of the day to inform and shape the painting’s development. The process is organic and emotionally driven. Adèle just knows when the painting is working and sharing something. With landscape references drawn from memory, she dialogues with abstract colour relationships that spontaneously emerge as she immerses herself in the process.
Adèle has been a practising artist for over twenty years having graduated in 1999. She has worked in various art organisations over the years; in a commercial gallery in London’s West End, as the first Curator for The Sidney Cooper Gallery in Canterbury and for The Royal British Society of Sculptors in Kensington, London.
As a result of learning the business side of art from the inside, she used this knowledge to promote her own exhibitions, gaining sponsorship and publicity for her work in local and national press. Then she took over ten years out to focus on being a mother. She is now re-establishing herself on the art scene.
Adèle has exhibited widely in group exhibitions at galleries across the UK and has work in BP Amoco and University of Hertfordshire’s permanent collections. Her painting ‘Promise’ won “Best Professional Abstract or Experimental Art Award” in the SAA Artist of the Year 2020 competition.
