Coming from a painter’s heart, Reflective Canvas is the home of years of brushstrokes, designs, sketches, sweat, tears, hopes, dreams, and dedication. As you explore each painting and design, my hope is that you will connect, feel, and relate in your own way.


Adara Wright has been drawing and painting ever since she could hold a pencil. When her drawings of people changed from sticks and circles to more anatomically correct figures at age six, she immediately knew art was an innate part of her soul.

Adara completed both her undergraduate (B.S.) and graduate studies (M.F.A.) in Studio and Digital Arts, focusing on studio media as well as graphic design. Currently, when she’s not taking ballet classes or reading long novels, Adara teaches higher-education drawing online and works in curriculum development for a local arts non-profit, helping plan and coordinate education and outreach programming.

Her passion is to use portraiture and mixed media paired with graphic design to tell stories through human emotion and experiences. Art is a tool to give others hope and joy.

more about the artist


I love to work in a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, graphite, charcoal, pastel, and other mixed media. My favorite subject is the portrait. There is something so powerful and fundamental about connecting with the human face.
