am Adriana Whitney, a self-taught folk artist. I work on canvas
and wood. My favorite medium is acrylic and crackle effect. My
subjects are mostly women and angels.
was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on a 1971 Christmas morning.
I discovered art when I was around 8 years old, I grew up in a
museum (my mom’s work) surrounded by famous paintings. I
started drawing at the age of 10. I studied in a little studio
near my house in Buenos Aires where I learned to draw using charcoal.
I love to experiment with mediums, paper, buttons, wood and I
also love to create primitive cloth and clay dolls with an antique
feeling. My style is naïve most of the time but I love stepping
out and painting my own rendition of some famous renaissance artists.
On my paintings I like to reflect childhood memories and nostalgia.
currently live in Katy, Texas with my husband and three daughters.
