"If you've ever seen Cruz's work, you'll know it's hard to ignore.
She is one of Portland's reigning masters of color and pattern.
Adriene's creations remind one of the complexities of jazz.
Her work resonates with intuitive spontaneity that blends nurturing with life's experience insightfully,
while challenging the eye, mind and heart to discover new meanings and relationships."
Randy Gragg's review in the Portland Oregonian
Adriene Cruz, a nationally-acclaimed artist residing in Portland,
Oregon, is known
for her vibrant meditation quilts. Although primarily a textile artist, Adriene's gifted use of color and design has also garnered
attention for work in other mediums created
specifically for public art.
Her art has been exhibited in museums and galleries
across the United States, and she has
been featured in numerous books and publications.
