Early in life, Adele Webster found the escape creativity provided, the peaceful place your brain wanders while creating. Everything she paints begins in nature; the way water moves, the way clouds form. Natural landscapes, seascapes and horizon lines are a constant theme throughout her creations.
“Nature is my greatest inspiration. I’m fascinated with the layering of distant horizons. To me, looking out over a large body of water or open vista is one of the most peaceful, calming views. In my paintings, I try to capture the simple graceful beauty of it all. Also allowing the paint to settle, ebb and flow, in its own natural process makes sense to me. I embrace the mystery and beauty of it all.”
This is what Adele aims to capture with her contemporary abstracted style. She works on birch panels with acrylic and high gloss resin, allowing the wood to peek through and add a natural, textural element to her work. Adele paints to find peace and joy and hopes that it’s reflected back to everyone that sees it.
Adele studied Graphic Design at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario, and has worked in the graphics field for over twenty years. She paints from her Kingston studio, overlooking Lake Ontario.
