Adele studied fine art, painting at Winchester School of Art where she dismayed her tutors by insisting on painting wildlife. The inspiration for all her work is the natural world, specifically her ongoing practice of drawing from life.
This careful observation informs Adele’s paper art creations, enabling Immediately recognisable species to be depicted through the use of simple shapes and colours. She always strives to conjure up an elegant solution to the problems that arise during each design creation. Each design is a learning process that expands Adele’s self taught paper engineering skills, revealing new ideas and possibilities for the next.
