PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Wintergreen Arts Center is pleased to announce that local artist Jennifer Adrian recently joined the organization’s teaching staff.

A native of Wilmington, Delaware, Adrian’s family roots run generations-deep in Aroostook County.

“We were first introduced to Jennifer professionally when she served as a guest artist for our after-school arts program,” said Dottie Hutchins, Wintergreen’s executive director. “Jennifer is a gifted artist and has a very generous, kind approach to teaching. Our students love her. She is an amazing addition to our team.”

Adrian received a bachelor of fine arts in metals and a bachelor of science in business administration from the University of Delaware. Most recently, she received a master of business administration in entrepreneurship from NorthCentral University while in the role of a clinical specialist at the Mayo Clinic.

She has spent over 20 years in healthcare sales and marketing for major healthcare entities in the Midwest.

Adrian is currently creating works in acrylics, oils, fine metals, and glass. Along with teaching arts workshops for children and adults, she is also serving as a mentor in the Top Gun Small Business incubator program hosted by the Maine Center for Entrepreneurs and Northern Maine Development Commission.

Adrian currently resides in Fort Fairfield with her husband Brian, who works as a physician with the Veterans Administration in Caribou. When not creating art, Adrian enjoys her spare time at Cross Lake with family and her two dogs, Henry and Olivia.
