Adrienne is a multidisciplinary artist and designer who is passionate about creative re-use and sustainable art.
She has been fascinated by textiles since she was a young girl digging through piles of fabric
in her Baba's sewing room. Originally from Chicago, she holds a BFA in Fashion Design
from the International Academy of Design and Technology.
Adrienne began costuming for short films written and directed by students
at the Institut des Arts de Diffusion in Belgium; and is a recent graduate of Concordia University’s Design for the Theatre program in Montreal.
Her painting and collage work have been exhibited in the US, Canada, and Europe; and since settling in Montreal
she has worked on many performing arts productions as a costume designer and/or technician.
In 2018, Adrienne and her collaborator, Jess Beyer, won the Montreal Broadway World Regional Awards for Best Costume Design for the Addams Family (WISTA), and again in 2019 for their work on Bonnie and Clyde (Contact Theatre).
Currently, Adrienne works as a fur artisan crafting eco-luxe fashion accessories from
recycled fur for The Canadian Hat Company-Harricana. Additionally, she creates custom dolls, art, and clothing through her brand, Kookbat Creations, which she spawned in April 2020. She is working towards expanding Kookbat by beginning the development of collaborative, interdisciplinary projects which will explore absurdist performance through costume, sound, and video animation.
