Adrienne was born and raised in the Midwest. Her grandmother taught her knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, sewing, and embroidery. Later in life she explored pottery, copper enameling, and weaving. These were hobbies for her own enjoyment and for gifts, although she did sell a few items to friends.
Adrienne retired after working 35 years in corporate accounting and she later relocated to Arizona. She took beading classes and was hooked. She then studied various techniques such as wire wrap and weave, pearl crochet, complex beading styles and stitches, silversmithing,
and working with precious metal clay. She acquired a Japanese marudai table for braiding and has incorporated the technique of kumihimo, a type of Japanese braid, into her work.
Adrienne has participated in many art shows in Arizona and she has won several awards. Enjoy her creativity at the Sedona Artist Market.
