Growing up in New Orleans, I have a love of architectural elements and detail. They’re integrated into my work space and my home. Many are mounted on stands and others sit on a table or mantle, and groupings of the elements are beautiful.

Adele is a New Orleans-born artist whose architecturally influenced work is distinguished by multiple layers of texture, color and pattern.

While working as a full-time artist, Adele obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in art history with a studio minor from Newcomb College in New Orleans. She also holds a master’s degree in social work from Tulane University in New Orleans. In 1996, she cofounded the Wellness Center in New Orleans and designed a program of art therapy for cancer patients. In 1999 she became a licensed Gestalt therapist. 

Adele’s work has been displayed in galleries across the country, featured in world-class magazines (including Veranda and House Beautiful), and adorned the walls of prestigious enterprises such as Neiman Marcus and Saks 5th Avenue. Among many corporate collections that host Adele’s work are:”

Swedish Hospital, Seattle, WA
Shafer Winery, Napa, CA
Pahlmeyer Winery, St. Napa, CA
Mulvanny Architects, Seattle, WA
New Orleans Public Service, New Orleans, LA
Tulane University, New Orleans, LA
Hotel Max, Seattle, WA
Research Data Associates, Tampa, FL

Abstract painting is an ongoing focus, and I've been exploring realistic work as well, through the flower paintings and more. While travel feeds my independent nature, I never want to stop working, so have established studios in the South and the West, with a dedicated following - many have asked about my show schedule and venues, listed above. I also schedule POP-UPS in my studio, so please sign up for my newsletter for schedule updates. 


After exhibiting in solo and group shows across the country, presently I'm showing in venues with more direct access to interested decorators and buyers. With working studios in Seattle, Los Angeles and New Orleans, I've decided to open one of those spaces - the New Orleans studio - as something of a 'pop-up.' Visitors by appointment are always welcome, and my newsletter announces 'pop-up' shows intermittently throughout the year. | 206.769.3306
