About Adrienne

Adrienne is a Sydney-based set designer working in theatre, film and styling. She has studied textiles and graphic design at UNSW Art & Design, graduating in 2019 and received a master’s in design from NIDA in 2021.

During her time at UNSW Art & Design, Adrienne received the ‘Rug Up’ Award for her rug design, which went on to be sold at Designer Rugs. She has since worked on a variety of short films such as the The Beautiful They and completed a secondment for Pinchgut Opera for the filming of Strozzi.

At NIDA, Adrienne has had the opportunity to combine her film and theatre skills during the Digital Theatre Festival. Lunacy, designed during lockdown, was an adaption of 1960s sci-fi novel Rogue Moon. She continued to explore set design in theatre through the Russian comedy, The Government Inspector, adapted by Roger Pulvers, employing the theme of quick changes throughout the set and props.
