This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted October 2005, is from the artist.


A sixth-generation New Zealander, Adele Earnshaw was born in Hastings in 1949 and lived in Warkworth before immigrating with her family to the U.S.  Her childhood in New Zealand has had a major influence on her work and choice of subject matter today. 

Adele's paintings have been exhibited at the Natural History Museum in New York and have toured Japan and Sweden with Birds in Art exhibitions.  She is a member of the Society of Animal Artists. 

Adele was selected by her native New Zealand to design the first three stamps for the Game Bird Habitat Stamp Programme, based on the U.S. Federal Duck Stamp Program.  She was invited to participate in the first Ecoart conference and exhibition in Taiwan, in December of 1999. Adele’s work was exhibited at the National Museum of History in Taipei, along with the work of 12 other artists representing nine different countries.  In recent years, Adele has also been painting landscapes plein air, in both oil and watercolor.

Adele Earnshaw’s paintings hang in galleries across the U.S including the Art et Vie Sauvage Gallery in Paris.  Her watercolor, The Roost, is in the permanent collection of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.  Adele’s book, Painting The Things You Love in Watercolor, a North Light publication, was released in July of 2002. She has been featured on the PBS series The Artist’s Workshop.

Adele was selected as one of five judges for the prestigious 2003 Federal Duck Stamp Contest held by the Department of Interior’s Fish & Wildlife Service.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
At age 25 and on maternity leave, she enrolled in a wildlife painting class by Joe Garcia, and this experience led to a long-time friendship and workshop collaboration with him and a distinguished career as a wildlife artist, quite often featuring birds sitting on brightly patterned quilts.

To get her subject matter, she photographs with a 70-300mm telephoto lens and draws on coldpress watercolor paper that she soaks in the bathtub for 45 minutes. She staples it to a board and lets it dry overnight.
