Adrian will be doing a still life from life.

Adrian Giuliani Bio
At 17, Adrian was introduced to soft pastels by Flora Giffuni, the founder of the Pastel Society of America. She had the great fortune of studying with Flora that year.
Adrian studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she truly discovered her love for pastels. She graduated in 1987 with a BFA in Illustration. Today she is thrilled to be focusing on fine art, creating both portraits and still lifes and working almost exclusively in soft pastel. She has also been teaching pastels to adults at South Avenue Arts in Garwood, New Jersey.
Known for her pastel portraits of children, Adrian’s goal is always to capture a moment in time and to create a beautiful piece of art that becomes a beloved keepsake for a family.
All of Adrian’s still lifes are done from life, as she pushes and plays with reality, taking artistic risks. She believes working from life is essential, as it so strengthens your skills as an artist. Adrian was honored to have been guest blogger for How to Pastel this past May, writing about her tea kettle series. https://www.howtopastel.com/2018/05/adrian-frankel-giuliani-tea-kettle-series/
Adrian is proud to be a Signature member of the Pastel Society of America, the Pastel Society of New Jersey and the Alabama Pastel Society.
