Connecting with my culture & heritage and love for Wyoming through folk-artistry
Spending her childhood summers helping her grandparents in the Plains of Colorado peeling freshly picked corn and using the husks to braid crosses, gods eyes and dolls. Adrianna immediately fell in love with creating with her hands and learning about her heritage and culture. Keeping Hispanic and American basket making alive while blending in newer techniques like Nantucket weaving has become her top priority.
Adrianna resides in her hometown in Wyoming. She finds Wyoming to be rich with natural resources that offers an artist of her alternative mountain style room to grow and thrive.
Adrianna uses American sourced items such as reed, cane, hard wood rims, bases and handles. She enjoys harvesting raw materials from the mountains of Wyoming with her family to use to adorn her baskets with. She hounds for agates, opals, petrified woods, random wood pieces, nuts, antlers, cattails and feathers. This makes her baskets more modern and more stylized towards the people of the mountainous west.
Select weavings are carefully created and handled with pure intent and love. Each piece should only be handled while in a state of a pure mind and positivity. Never to release negative energy or spirit into the objects. A technique used when braiding or brushing hair and fibers in Hispanic culture. Each object made in this manner serves a purpose, feeling or memory of the land.
Thank you for your time and attention and I hope you gained some inspiration!
