Adrienne Butvinik has been an artist her entire life.  She can't remember a time when drawing, painting and making things hasn't been the reason for waking up every day! She has an extensive background in drawing, painting and ceramics, but lately her focus has been on decorating silk to wear.  Adrienne has been teaching art since 1974 and currently teaches high school crafts where she encourages young artists to express their creativity in functional artwork.  Adrienne is thrilled to see people in her wearable paintings and looks forward to learning from her daily work.

Her work can be found at the Bethel Woods Museum Shop and
Barking Lizards Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.  She also has a shop on Etsy.

Artist's Statement:  I love making art to wear !  I love color!  I love process!  When I create a silk scarf or garment I think of  wearing something LIVE.  I let my mistakes lead me and like to think of the materials and process taking over at some point and making a statement of their own.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
