About the artist

Adrienne Waterston

Searching for evidence, proof of existence. Watching where I walk. Always looking, looking for old things, looking for new things. Wondering about the nature of head and heart. Exploring ideas about what is important ... and what is not. Feeling my way. Constructing a platform, a goal, an end. Playing with color and light. Holding on to and letting go. Transforming what I see into what I feel and back again into something seen.

Adrienne currently lives in Central Pennsylvania with her two agents of chaos and assorted critters.
