"I travel to many wildlife art shows every year and use these trips as opportunities to visit wildlife refuges and zoos. Field sketching and photography provide the reference material I need to produce a painting that is accurate in species and habitat."
A sixth generation New Zealander, Adele Earnshaw was born in Hastings, New Zealand, and lived in Warkworth before emigrating to the United States at the age of 12 with her family. Her early years in the New Zealand environment left an indelible impression on her and strongly influence her work today. Earnshaw works primarily in transparent watercolor. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Museum of Natural History in New York and have toured Japan. Her work has been accepted many times in the "Birds in Art" exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin.
