"What a fun night Adriana put on! I loved being surrounded by supportive women as I ventured into a scary place for me...being artistic. Adriana was very patient, joyful and encouraging. She showed us how to paint a beautiful night sky canvas...her steps were very clear and doable. She even gave me specific tools and tips when I struggled. The result was amazing!!! She made me an artist! My family still can’t believe I actually created it...and now they are commissioning pieces for each of their bedrooms. So, I’m excited to do another night with Adriana soon!" ~Erin
"Adriana was the perfect artist to facilitate our ladies paint and sip party. Her presence is so calming and she encouraged us throughout the whole process. The way in which she lead our group of chatty ladies was just perfect. We all walked away very amazed that we could create a painting like we did. She definitely sparked something inside me and I went out to purchase my own set of paints and brushes the next day. So thankful for Adriana and I can't wait to take another class with her soon!" ~Bree
"One of the most enjoyable evenings I have had painting with friends. Adriana did such a fantastic job of instructing while inspiring creativity and providing plenty of time to chat!" ~Amy
"Adriana put together a lovely, well-planned wine and paint night. The materials were all neatly laid out upon our arrival and ready for us to go. She provided clear instructions and patiently waited for everyone to finish before moving on to the next step. As a non-artistic individual myself, I was amazed at the beautiful piece of art I was able to create with Adriana's encouragement. I can't wait to attend another event!" ~Kathryn
"Such a fun night! I have no artistic ability yet I managed to paint something cool! Adriana was excellent! She did such a great job explaining and demonstrating every step. I really had a great time and would love to do it again." ~Amy Barley
“I organized a paint party for my coworkers and brought in Adriana to lead it. My coworkers really enjoyed it! We got images of peoples’ paintings after the fact, and every email included a note on how much fun they had.” ~ J.T. Amazon Program Coordinator | Recruiting Programs & Services
"Life is random and beautiful. Mama Bear Arts made this intentional artwork for me and I don’t have the words to explain how it makes me feel. All I can do is cry some happy tears and feel the love and beauty that is. Beauty and chaos of life! Thank you. If you need something to speak to your soul to bring it out of hiding ... go and get an artwork done"
"Adriana tapped into a part of me that needed serious expression, then reflected it back to me in a few different ways. One of which was a representative painting that blew me away! I'm still integrating what she gifted me with, and that snapshot of awareness is such a wonderful offering."
"Adriana’s work deeply resonated with the core of my present life experience. Her intuitive guidance is spot on, gentle but powerful, and the imagery and symbols she creates are a felt experience, deep within my bones. There is a moving authenticity in her words, as though she is sitting beside me reading my energy. I am beyond grateful for her gifts of beauty and support. With her help I feel confident I am on the right path in my life. "
"Adriana has an amazing gift to read into people’s energy and create magic! Without knowing my place in life or where my practice was headed, she was able to intuit a beautiful logo for my practice with details of what each piece means. She also created business cards aside from my personal painting. Adriana creates pieces that will fulfill your soul. "
"The painting Adriana created for me is beautiful in its own right. The story that came forward to her as she intuited what symbols wanted to guide me was even more deeply resonant. The gift of her work is as much in the story Adriana reveals as in the final creation. "
"Your gifts help lift me. Every time I see a piece you have created, I am inspired."
" Adriana is a gifted soul. She can see what many cannot. If you are drawn to Adriana, step up, you will be happy you did."
"I just wanted to thank you so much for your energy and guided meditation tonight. I needed it so badly. I have slacked on my self care and meditation of late and you reminded me how essential it is for my health, my heart, and my growth. I didn't read your letter until I got in my car tonight. I was seeking reassurance that I am moving my life in the right direction and to learn more about the spiritual world and gifts that I may have and want to help grow.
I mentioned my cousin's birthday tomorrow...well, in all honesty I am always seeking glimmers of him from anywhere or anyone at these things. My father as well. They have really been the only 2 people in my life that made me feel utterly safe and that it was ok to laugh, dance, be strange, to just love life with no inhibition. They both passed away and I have yet to find that same feeling of safety and acceptance since. Your energy tonight...made me feel safe- I didn't want to leave haha, so thank you for that. I also wanted to tell you that of all the people I talked to tonight... there was no glimmer of my cousin or my dad, only in your letter. There was a part you wrote that said "Go into your cave. Light up those shadows. Dance. Play. Set yourself free."
I couldn't stop crying when I read that... My cousin and I used to play in a cave by a quarry (which is also where he died)...and my Dad always played the drums for me while I danced when I was little. You made me feel close to them tonight...for that I don't know to thank you other than saying thank you...from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. ....and I hear you...and them...I will light up the shadows and dance and play...;) "

"Absolutely in love with this beautiful, incredibly personal piece from Mama Bear Arts. Adriana's form of divination combines deep soul understanding, animal messages, elemental insights, and art, which results in a gorgeous token and a wickedly good soul reading. I feel so absolutely seen and affirmed by this piece and the two-page reading I recieved. So grateful to have a friend like Adriana. Sacred Human. Thank you Adriana."
" Thank you Adriana for this wonderful painting. The colors, the feel, the symbolism and the write up all are so spot on and touched me deeply. My whole being smiles each and every time I look at the painting. It hangs in my studio office, reminding me... "
