A Creative Journey Begins

Adelien's artistic journey as a Mixed Media Artist started with a love for all things crafty. She reminisces, "I always loved being creative. I began with craft projects like fabric painting and mosaic art." While exploring various creative avenues, she worked as a merchandiser, stylist, and now a nail technician. However, as she grew older, the allure of becoming a full-time artist grew stronger.



Drawing Inspiration from Whimsical Visionaries

In the realm of art, inspiration is often drawn from other visionaries who ignite the spark of creativity. When asked about her role models, Adelien explains, "I am inspired by a diverse group of artists. What they have in common is that their work is whimsical and colourful." These influential artists fuel her imagination and encourage her to infuse her own unique style into her artwork.

The Colours of Inspiration

The palette of Adelien's imagination is vibrant and limitless. Colour, powerful female archetypes, and the beauty found in unique individuals, adorned with tattoos and piercings, are some of the sparks that ignite her creative fire. When she finds herself in need of a creative boost, she turns to her muse, Frida Kahlo. Adelien remarks, "Painting Frida Kahlo without fail brings my mojo back. She is my art muse for sure."

Mixed Media Magic Unleashed

Adelien's artistic expression flourishes through the dynamic fusion of mixed media. Acrylic paint, acrylic ink, markers, colour pencils, collage, and alcohol markers dance harmoniously on her canvas. This liberating combination of media allows her to explore endless possibilities without constraints. "I love the freedom that mixing media gives me. There are no rules, only limitless potential," she shares.


Capturing the Essence of Magic

Themes of enchantment and empowerment permeate Adelien's art. Magical creatures, extraordinary individuals, and uplifting affirmations weave themselves into her creations. Each piece is a gateway to embracing one's authentic self and discovering the hidden magic and positivity within ourselves and the world around us.

Unveiling the Artist Within

Beyond her artistic endeavours, Adelien reveals a lesser-known aspect of her life. "I love to dance," she confesses. From ballet and tap to belly dancing, she has explored various forms of dance, and her heart still yearns for the lively rhythms of line dancing.


Embracing Life's Delights

When she's not engrossed in her artwork, Adelien finds solace in yoga. As a dedicated yogi, she feels incomplete without her regular practice. Yoga helps her find balance and tranquillity, providing an essential complement to her creative pursuits.
