I am a prime example of how things in your life can change but they can't change who you are.
As a child I dreamed of becoming a professional hockey player. When that dream didn't happen I found myself loving Information Technology. I owned my own IT business for 10 years with my brother Chris Nadeau and then moved on to become a Software Solutions Designer for JD Irving Ltd.
As I continued to adapt and change through my life, the biggest change was yet come...
Proud member of the Saint John, New Brunswick artist community
On March 1st, 2012 I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer.
Months later I fell in love with art.
Art and I discovered one another. I’m feeling well now, and I’ve found creating art to be a very healing and relaxing activity. I've been studying new disciplines of creating art since that time and I love every minute of it!
I began my journey doing sketches and drawings and then moved on to acrylic abstracts. I believe most of my work is refreshing and positively influences the spaces where my clients choose to display my pieces.
I look forward to growing my love of art in several different directions - creating, learning, teaching, and inspiring, and hope to continue working with amazing people as I continue my journey through life and art!
I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am grateful for everyone who has supported me along my journey and I intend to help others as much as I've been supported! One of my first goals is to bring inspiring Art Services to Saint John, New Brunswick and beyond.
January 2015 Update: I have come full circle and have slowly returned to work at JD Irving Ltd. They have given nothing but great support in my return. I intend to continue on with my art career, however, it's great to be back working with a great company and people!
Lots of love, Adrian
"We LOVE what Adrian has done for us! Adrian has some amazing talent! We are extremely pumped to have this art from Adrian! We highly recommend him and his work!"
"The painting looks great. I was impressed how Adrian took a few concepts and created a true work of art. Adrian is very creative."
"Adrian - I just wanted to say thank you for parting with this painting. :) As I'd told you, I watched this online for quite a while before finally going ahead and making the purchase. And, I am so glad I did! When I got it home, I was thrilled to discover that the picture I'd fallen in love with hadn't done the painting justice - there was so much more texture than
I'd realized and the colors were more vibrant.
You are one talented guy! Thanks again and know that this one is well loved in our home!"
"I love to support local artists and when Adrian started sharing pictures of his work I knew I needed to have an Adrian Nadeau original.
The energy in the painting is a perfect compliment to the entrance of our home...it really says this house lives in color, stands out and you will get some interesting conversation.
Thanks again Adrian for sharing your gifts...they speak through your work."
