Adriana is a native of Chile who has lived in the states since 1959. Her formal educational background is in Chemistry and Biochemistry with undergrad and graduate degree from the University of Chile in Santiago, Chile. Growing up in Chile, a land of deserts in rocks, had a great impact on her fascination with the Pacific Ocean and the mountains. Being around primitive cultures and their expressions of art cultivated an appreciation in her for the earth and the desire to create using the elements.
Adriana's art is also an expression and reflection of her formal training in the sciences. Adriana's belief is that nature's organic forms have influenced the abstract aesthetic and have given her designs and sculptures their form and shape.
