Adele Pound Art
Adele is a wildlife artist and keen birdwatcher based in County Down. She creates drawings, paintings, digital art, graphic stories and paper art, all with a wildlife theme.
Adele studied fine art, painting at Winchester School of Art where she dismayed her tutors by insisting on painting wildlife. The inspiration for all her work is the natural world. Central to this is her ongoing practice of drawing from life. Whether making field trips to Strangford Lough to draw wintering birds through a telescope or clipping magnifiers to her glasses to study insects in her garden, she still insists on drawing wildlife.
Adele has been has been supported with awards and bursaries from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Ards and North Down Borough Council and the Society of Wildlife Artists. She has taken part in numerous artist’s residencies. Many of these have been wildlife focussed, such as the John Busby Seabird Drawing course and the Ayatana Research Residency “Parliament of Owls” in Quebec, Canada.
It is this careful study, observation and research that enables Adele to design her paper art creations. Immediately recognisable species are depicted through the use of simple shapes and colours. She always strives to conjure up an elegant solution to the problems that arise during each design creation. Each design is a learning process that expands Adele’s self taught paper engineering skills, and reveals new ideas and possibilities for the next design.
