About the Artist: ADRIENNE TRAFFORD’S vibrant and whimsical award-winning art is influenced by artists who were also inspired by color – Van Gogh, Gauguin, Klimt, Mucha, as well as Japanese manga artists. Her strength lies in her use and passion for color in all forms, from abstract to life drawing, landscape to still life. Adrienne works with watercolor and ink and also with acrylics on canvas and wood. She works as both a fine artist and illustrator and is the “official artist laureate and creator of the official mascots – Spike and Tilly” for Humane Society Management Services.
During her college years, Adrienne spent time studying art in Europe, which has had a huge influence on her work. She graduated from Kutztown University with a BFA but took time off from art to start a family. Inspired by her new and wonderful children, she was creating again, selling her art on the internet and in galleries and specialty stores. She has been an independent artist full-time for the last 15 years.
Adrienne’s work is collected throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, France, South America, Lebanon and Japan. She now works full-time in her own studio at an art center in her home town and shows and sells regularly in galleries across her community and on the internet. She has also designed sets for local theater and does much charity work because she feels it’s important to give back some of the good fortune she has acquired from her art.
Adrienne is a published author/illustrator for Schiffer Publishing, takes commissions on a regular basis and produces amazing art and images which enhance promotional, advertising, and communications appeal and success.
