Hello, I’m Adrienne Silversmith

I am a contemporary expressionist artist working in oil, encaustics, mixed-media and W/C. My genres include abstract, figurative and marine art and cityscapes. I am inspired by the natural world around me and incorporate found natural elements like seedpods, leaves and bark into my encaustics and mixed media pieces. I also am fascinated by how the quality of light and shadows affects and informs certain structures such as architecture, landscapes, boats and water. I am forever fascinated by the figure, particularly the quality of flesh, how it has mass, color and life; how it informs us of the structures underneath or cushions them. I am and will always be a student of the human body as it will always be my forever muse.
