Meet Your Maker-in-Residence:
Adrienne Assinewai

Adrienne AssinewaiAbout Adrienne

Adrienne Assinewai is a Sudbury resident that originally hails from Manitoulin Island. Growing up on such a beautiful island, she was always inspired by the nature and traditional culture that surrounded her which also went on to influence her works later in life. Adrienne now creates her various works from home and her downtown studio which includes everything from sculptures to wildlife and pet portraits. She works in a variety of mediums such as wool, coloured pencil, graphite, and watercolour. You can find her creations online, in local shops, and various markets and festivals throughout the year under the name RavenStar Studio.


The Maker-in-Residence program has been made possible with the generous support from the Friends of the Greater Sudbury Public Library.
