Today, Adele has been creating pastel paintings part-time at her home-studio in PA. Her pastel paintings, known as Adele’s Pastels, reflect themes from the earth and all who live on it. Whether it is in intimate views of nature with reflections of light, portraits of animals of her travels or at her home with grass and fairies, she seeks to share the hidden places of nature and beauty of life. She also counsels children and young adults and integrates the love of pastels and other mediums into her sessions.
