The Jeanne Oliver Podcast

In this episode Jeanne is talking with artist and teacher Adele Sypesteyn. Her architecturally influenced abstract work incorporates multiple layers of texture, color and pattern. Adele is lavishly generous in sharing her process and her genuine interest in helping others to create art through her popular YouTube channel and also her online art academy.






Raised by an artist who incorporated a ceramic kiln and photography studio into our home, I grew up  knowing the arts as the only way to live life. In fact, my brother and two sisters also ventured into the  arts in different ways.

My architecturally influenced abstract work incorporates multiple layers of texture, color and pattern.

I earned a B.A. in art history with a studio minor from Newcomb College in New Orleans while working  full-time as an artist. I also achieved a master’s degree in social work from Tulane University in New  Orleans. Co-founding the Wellness Center in New Orleans in 1996, I designed a program of art therapy  for cancer patients. In 1999, I earned my license as a Gestalt therapist.

My work has been displayed in galleries across the country, featured in world-class magazines (including  Veranda and House Beautiful), and has adorned the walls of prestigious enterprises such as Neiman  Marcus and Saks 5th Avenue.
