This is My Story
Growing up in the Air force as a proud military brat, I discovered art to be a way of coping through every move, making new friends, and the many times my father had to be carrying out missions across the globe. With my husband now continuing a legacy of service to our great country, art is still my therapy and how I choose to express my emotions when he deploys.
The greatest motivation behind my work is my faith in God and the beauty of His creation. Whether it’s a colorful sunset, interaction with wildlife, the ocean, or looking at a sky full of stars, these are the elements of nature that infuse daily creativity into my paintings and where my ideas take flight.
Along with my faith, I am also very inspired by those who serve; the soldiers who deploy at any moment’s notice, and loved ones who stay behind to manage life the home-front. My art took a major turn when my husband and I loss three wonderful friends during a plane crash in our squadron of March 2017. Shortly after this tragic accident, I had a dream of their plane soaring across the heavens into this beautiful, ethereal cloudscape of light. I then created my painting “Godspeed” to honor their legacy, and remind those of where our greatest American heroes rest in peace.
My purpose as an artist is to bring light, color, and peace into your world, your home, and lives. Thank you for visiting Art by Adelia, I hope I have the pleasure in meeting you one day and getting to know you!
