Adele’s natural talents were encouraged by her parents and grandparents who were master tailors, quilt makers and music teachers. Their skills and expertise inspired her to find her own artistic path leading her to exploring figurative sculpture, creative costuming, wearable art, bead weaving, watercolor painting, photography, crocheting and sewing.
Adele played an active role in New York City’s "Broadway Bears" galas, which annually generated money for Broadway stars coping with terminal illness. Her original costuming for bears helped raise thousands of dollars for this noble cause.
Each of Adele’s fine art figurative sculptures captures the true spirit of doll-making, with their unique souls and personalities. Her figurative pieces adorn homes that have become treasured gifts – held in awe and appreciation by all who view them.
Adele now shares her love for doll art with aspiring and experienced students through both live and online classes that challenge their talents and meet their creative needs.
