Acrylic | Mixed Media | Oil Pastel | Drawing | Art Instruction
Adrienne Forshner Kinsey combines pattern, texture and materials with vibrant color and thick layers of paint to create her dimensional acrylic paintings. She transforms acrylic paint to mimic other materials, such as glass, concrete, and wax, and even molds it by hand into sculptural forms to achieve amazing depth.
Originally from Dalton, Georgia, Adrienne received eleven years of formal education in the arts, including graduation from the North Carolina School of the Arts, a BA in Studio Art from Florida State University, and a BFA with a concentration in Interior Design from the University of Georgia. When she is not creating, Adrienne offers individual and group lessons in Mixed Media Art, Abstract and Traditional Drawing and Painting, Oil Pastel, and Leather Jewelry. Students also learn fundamental principals of design, composition, and color theory with fun, innovative materials. Adrienne teaches students of all experience levels in her Tannery Row studio.
