Adelle Bernadette turned to painting in search of a healing outlet. She had worked as a wood carver and sculptor commissioned by the Lakota First Nations’ elders and spiritual community to create ceremonial healing pieces. Each painting begins with the old masters technique of applying a monochrome base. The Vancouver-based artist then applies countless layers of acrylic paint until the work vibrates with color and mood.
“My greatest inspiration comes from connecting to the natural beauty and divine presence in all things. It is this that I deeply cherish and honor. –Artist statement
