Interviewed by John McManus
Q :: You graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design more than a decade ago, what do you know about yourself as an artist now verses back then… when you were fresh out of college?
Adrienne :: I can’t believe it’s already been 15 years! Ha. That puts it into perspective. I’ve loved and lost.. that’s for sure.
Honestly, I am still learning about myself ‘the artist’ every single day. When I was ‘fresh’, I knew nothing and I fell in love fast. Perspective is something earned; only gained after many mistakes and a lot of trial and error.
Ultimately, the trials of life make us who we are.
It’s hard to know who you’ll become at 22. Learning to become a mother has changed me in ways I can’t begin to fully describe. But I can seen it throughout the evolution of my work. I can see all of the fundamental changes that I’ve undergone. It’s all there, just beneath the surface.
The stories of everyday life influences me. Every day is different. First thing upon waking, you don’t know what will unfold by day’s end.
Although there is one thing has not changed. That, my friend, is my love of creating beautiful images!
