what Laura says about her work: ‘Pencil is the only medium I've ever really worked hard to master. (Not that I have by any means.) For some reason it just ticks all the
boxes for me as far as my need to be creative. I love the ability to focus on the detail and really bring to life the characteristics in a subject that inspire me. My drawings
begin as an emotional response to what I've learned about that subject and I have a strong desire to document those feelings artistically.’ Laura has also won Second Place
for 2D, at the 2005 juried Kenosha Art Association Membership show, ‘Sentimental Journey’, held at the Kenosha Public Museum.

Racine Wustum museum, The Kenosha Museum, Johnson Wax Co., Art Reach, the Rhode Spotlight Gallery, among others. Adelle’s choice of medium and color depend on her ‘feeling
for the best way to interpret the subject’. She often uses an ’impressionistic technique with rich color, which brings out the spirit of the person, yet is a life-like
portrayal of the person’. ‘I hope the viewer can enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it; then I have been successful.’ See Adelle’s work in our Abstract, Landscapes, and Seascapes sections. Email Adelle -> email@example.com
