Growing up, Adrianna Taylor always sought after any opportunity to be involved in her community. Specifically anything that involved the arts, such as clay and art festivals and local fundraisers. Adrianna is a mixed media artist, primarily working in painting, fibers and ceramics. Her work focuses on the intentionality and handiwork of creation through marks, layers, color, light, metaphor, and poetry. She curated “What is Your Passion?”, had a solo exhibition “Strokes of the Creator” and her BFA exhibition “Mark” while attending university. Following her graduation from Alfred University, with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History, she returned home to Virginia. There she works in a home studio and started her own business with Blue Ridge Pottery, where she makes functional stoneware. Using her talents and connections she aims to build a community surrounded by creativity.
