Ponnopozz is the art and studio of Adrianne Hawthorne. Adrianne uses vivid colors in unexpected combinations to create wild, colorful acrylic and gouache paintings of plants and other abstractions. Color has always been her main source of inspiration. Adrianne comes from a graphic design background but prefers the act of making art with her own hands. She initially felt uneasy putting so much of herself out into the world, but has since felt a satisfaction that she never found in corporate America. Ponnopozz is named after two imaginary friends, Ponno and Pozzer, that the artist had as a child. The name is a daily reminder of the unbridled creativity of childhood that she continues to nurture through the act of painting and drawing. Adrianne is currently based in Chicago where she resides with her partner, Seth, and their three cats.
