Adwena is a self taught Sydney-based practicing artist and writer. Having graduated from the University of Sydney in the field of Art History and English literature, she is drawn to what infers creativity and its expression. In 2005 she completed two semesters within a fine arts institution, only to find that its structure and philosophy did not coincide with her very own. She cites that artistic expression cannot be confined nor directed, and that technique is best discovered than taught. Her work is abstract expressionist in aesthetic, although chance and instinct are fundamental principles to her entire oeuvre.
