Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Adele Sciortino, ODACA artist now resides in Canada.
Her artistic abilities, are a direct result of a strong heritage of creativity stemming from talented grandparents and parents who were master tailors, quilt makers, and music teachers, who handed down a myriad of learning techniques to bring forth a creative and artistic presentation. Her endeavors to bring fabric and clay from its most simple form to a delicate creation of distinction are a constant driving force.
Each distinctive figurative sculpture has their own unique quality, made with the utmost care and imaginative focus. Her scope widens as she continues to build her creative process moving from cloth to sculpting polymer clay figures to achieve a more realistic look to the character.
