Adrienne Beacham is a Maine artist, textile designer, and food/cooking enthusiast.
Growing up as a 90's kid, Adrienne was enchanted by Lisa Frank, the Ninja Turtles, Pokemon, Gargoyles (she still misses her Goliath sneakers), and her creepy crawler oven. An anxious child, she had too many stuffed animals to count. One was always with her, and each had its own distinctive personality and approach to calming her nerves. Much of Adrienne's artwork today pulls on these nostalgic vibes as she attempts to re-create the magic of her childhood and excite similar feelings in her viewers.
Adrienne has a passion for strange creatures, bright colors, organic patterns, and scribbling. She loves working with materials of all kinds, and is endlessly fascinated by the translation of ideas into physical form.
Since 2014, Adrienne has worked in Monmouth as the designer for Maine Heritage Weavers, an heirloom textile manufacturer carrying on in the tradition of the iconic Bates Manufacturing Company. At Maine Heritage, she has played a key part in the development of both traditional and modern textile designs for an array of customers, including national home goods retailers and boutique brands throughout North America and Europe.
In addition to making art, Adrienne’s restless energy manifests itself in a passion for local foods, cooking, and recipe-writing. She is an avid weightlifter, and loves collecting and caring for her many houseplants.
