Adele was born and raised in Ottawa. Growing up in an artistic family where creativity was always encouraged, Adele painted from a very young age and in high school began to take commissions for paintings and drawings. In 1989 during her first visit to Europe and to Prague, the birthplace of her parents, she fell in love with her heritage and her eyes were opened to the beauty of the urban landscape.

After completing undergraduate degrees in English and Art History and a Master’s degree in Art History at Carleton University in the early 1990’s, Adele began to paint in earnest, fueled by her love of the beautiful urban scenes she had discovered on her numerous visits to Europe. Since then her paintings have continued to be inspired by her travels and most recently, by her new-found appreciation for the beauty of the city she grew up in but never really saw with the eyes of an artist: Ottawa.

Adele seeks to draw the eye of the viewer to the beauty in an ordinary scene through the use of intense color, playful texture, and strong lines, contours and contrasts. Favorite visual subjects in Adele’s urban paintings include: the contrast between the hardness of iron and glass with the softness and fluidity of foliage, a sweeping sky, or the human form; abstracted reflections in windows; and the boldness of metalwork and signage.

Adele has been painting and selling her work for thirty years. Her paintings are in collections in Canada, the United States, Australia and Europe. She has exhibited and sold her paintings through private commissions, in local restaurants, through four-years’ participation in the Orleans Art Studio Tour. Her work is now available at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa.
