Isabel Adonis

Folk artist and writer Isabel uses paint, fabric and collage to create beautiful and colourful, original works of collaged art. Exploring the subject of “home”, her paintings have a unique naive quality and often deal with a range of challenging themes. Born in London, Isabel lived in the Sudan as a child before moving to Wales at the age of nine. As a child she made fabric dolls and as a teenager began experimenting with quilting. In 2008 she found a canvas in a dustbin, took it home and made her first ever painting ‘Girl With Crow’. Isabel’s work is inspired by both the geometry of Islamic art and the home-made craft of American folk art.

Exhibitions: Liverpool Academy of the Arts, Llandudno Library, Station Road Open Air Gallery.
