Adele Riley is a British-born artist living in Gloucestershire, she's surrounded by some of the most natural and inspiring surroundings in the UK, well-placed to benefit from a huge variety of light, texture, and drama – perfect for what she does. Adele usually begins by sensing the subject, sometimes using a photo or a sketch to extract weather, light, horizons and shapes to commit the scene to canvas with a variety of media and paint. What she fears most is repetition, so she experiments a lot with media and colour, asking questions of the fresh and the new, trying things out (getting things wrong), but all the time learning and looking to improve. Having studied Illustration at Epsom School of Art, she has always continued to learn and develop from her experiences and travels. Not having a formal arts grounding Adele found to be a positive thing, as she could appreciate painting by it’s many disciplines. Adele learned more by challenging the rules of fine art, as well as applying them. It helped drive her enthusiasm until she arrived at a style of painting that represents her as an artist. In addition to painting, Adele teaches art to adults and children both through her business based in Gloucester, and in surrounding local schools
