Hello and welcome! I am Adrienne Vita and I'm an artist living in Portland, Oregon. Living here for over a decade now, growing up in Connecticut on Long Island Sound, and frequent trips to New York city were and are a big source of inspiration for me. Drawing has been a part of my life since I was little and I decided early on that I wanted to have a career as an artist. I began studying animation and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and had a career doing just that. After years of meandering in various creative positions, I came back full circle to painting and illustration with a mix of design. In late 2007, I opened up my shop selling my art online, in boutiques, at art shows and in person at fairs. I love to paint unique animals, unusual environments, unexpected portraits, characters, hand painted letters and repeat pattern for surface design. It's been a fun door to open to a world of seeing my art on socks, home decor objects, books, magazines and so much more to come. In my shop I like to add special messages to each piece of art. I truly believe that The Universe is always telling us something, so I hope the messages will inspire or be just what you needed to hear in that moment. My favorite mediums and tools to use are watercolor, gouache, acrylic, ink, pencil, brush, paper, and wood. Each piece of art I create comes through either my dreams, intuition, meditations or long walks.
