“I have taken a few art courses but never have I come away having learned so much as I have with Adrian. The classes are pleasant.  Adrian is kind and funny and supportive but at the same time, gently demanding that one should try their best and push their personal limits. While I am in awe of such a fine and accomplished artist, her approach to her students is genuinely one of teacher. For any aspiring artist, spending time with Adrian is most inspirational and illuminating. Adrian makes me feel that I am an artist.”   Nancy Nourry, Lavant
