This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Using textiles as her paint, Adrienne Yorinks uses a variety of techniques including quilting, applique, collage, and photo transfer to make artistic statements including abstract expressionism and book illustrations. Her work is a mix of traditional crafts with modern techniques, and her message addresses contemporary issues ever reminding viewers of their historical roots. She asserts that fabric is the first thing that babies touch and is worn throughout life, conveying the story of the person. Quilting and sewing were social activities and speak of American history. Some of her work is small still life illustrations, and others are 10 foot collages.

The City University of New York commissioned Yorinks to create a work of art to commemorate the university's 150th anniversary, and the piece which incorporates archival photos and documents from the university library, is installed at Baruch College. One of her commissions celebrates the commitment of the AFL-CIO to Civil Rights and hangs in their Washington DC headquarters.

Her art is in many private and corporate collections including Sony Corporation and the Campbell Soup Company. She has also illustrated a number of books including "Stand for Children" by Marian Wright Edelman and "The Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Dog" by Eugene O'Neill.

She lives and works in Westchester County and is married to Arthur Yorinks, a writer.
