About

Hadley grew up in a home filled with color, with a mother who felt that humanity’s greatest invention was the color wheel. Hadley recalls her mom changing wall colors as often as other people change the sheets. Being surrounded by a vivid palette profoundly influenced her. But rather than paint walls, Hadley’s outlet for her hereditary color addiction is her easel.

On the day little Hadley met an artist who painted for his profession, she formulated her dream of becoming an artist. Her exact words were, “People get paid to do this?” She soon encountered a major obstacle on the path to realizing her dream: the bunny incident. At the tender age of seven, Hadley was unable to draw a bunny as beautifully as her friend Monica. She threw a Richter-scale tantrum, screaming “I can’t draw!” Somehow Hadley found the resolve to keep drawing despite the nay-sayers (including, most notably,…

On the day little Hadley met an artist who painted for his profession, she formulated her dream of becoming an artist. Her exact words were, “People get paid to do this?” She soon encountered a major obstacle on the path to realizing her dream: the bunny incident. At the tender age of seven, Hadley was unable to draw a bunny as beautifully as her friend Monica. She threw a Richter-scale tantrum, screaming “I can’t draw!” Somehow Hadley found the resolve to keep drawing despite the nay-sayers (including, most notably, herself). She continued to draw, and on and on she drew, right through her graduation with honors from the San Francisco Art Institute. Today Hadley lives her dream working as an illustrator and artist in her hometown, Portland, OR - where she has yet to perfect the bunny.

Hadley’s work is a blend of traditional painting and modern design. She draws inspiration from Asian patterns and motifs, Victorian die cuts, and geometric designs. Her work explores nature’s beauty, people’s influence on their surroundings, and the environment's influence on people. The works are layered with colored pencil and watercolor pencil drawings, ink, archival digital media, pastels and encaustics.

Hadley’s Philosophy: Less is more. (Except in the case of art supplies – where too much is never enough.)

PRINTER INFORMATION

I print using HP 130nr or HP B9180 large format printer for all digital prints

The printer produces pigment-based prints with its large gamut range. The HP Vivera inks create brilliant fade and water resistent prints that are guaranteed to last at least a 100 years.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PAPER INFORMATION

I print on Hahnmule German Etching (310mg) paper. The German Etch is a heavy weight, professional, matte, museum quality paper. This mould-made acid free paper has a slight texture like traditional etching paper, yet is also smooth enough to reproduce fine surface details.The paper is really lovely; it makes a fine print look even that much better!
