No stranger to showing in the Motel Art Show, Adrienne Brown-David will return this year to show her work for the 6th year. Born in St. Louis, MO, she began drawing at a very young age. Her passion for art was consistently nurtured by her family. She began taking extracurricular art classes at the age of 12. These classes consisted of everything from pottery to photography. For much of her life, graphite was the main focus of her art. After a brief stint at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a short return to St. Louis, Adrienne relocated to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. It was there that she began to focus on painting and mixed media. Her work ranges from pen drawings to full scale painted works. Her work now hangs in many private collections, including the home of writer Jesmyn Ward who owns three of Adrienne's pieces.
Adrienne Brown-David currently works from her home studio in Water Valley, MS where she resides with her husband, Taariq and their four daughters.
