Adrienne was born and raised in a town (well it's a city now) called Tauranga, which is in a beautiful region of New Zealand called The Bay of Plenty.
She studied at Victoria University in Wellington, NZ (absorbing all the local art and culture as she went), gaining a double major in Art History and Classical Studies.
Adrienne then moved back to The Bay, to Whakatane, where (alongside running a business) she studied Early Childhood Education, Language and Literacy, Learning Development, and Human Development.
Adrienne is currently based in gorgeous Perth,

"For as long as I can remember, I have loved writing stories and poems. From primary school and onwards I filled all my margins with doodles, I did cute drawings and wrote silly stories and poems for my friends, always handed in three stories when the teacher asked for one, and in my final year I was awarded a scholarship for creative writing.
For some reason it took me a long time to come back to my roots as it were, to take the things I had learned and use them to do the things I love… putting them together with writing stories and creating images to make children’s picture books. But I’m there now, and loving it."
