Adele Love

Rochester, Kent

I graduated in Fine Art in 1999 and have exhibited in various venues across the country combined with working in the art world ever since. After many years of working in commercial galleries, being Curator of a University gallery, working at The Royal British Society of Sculptors and taking a seven year break from my practice, I am now enjoying spending more time focussing on my painting. I have recently been exhibiting with Grierson Art Gallery and will be exhibiting at their new art fair at Dulwich Prep school in Cranbrook in October 2020.
