How did you start your design journey?

“I have always been very curious and creative person but life as an artist in Venezuela was never a viable career, so I focused on obtaining first a degree in Visual Communications from ProDiseño in Caracas in 2011. But eventually my love of art lead me to Chelsea UAL in London for a BA (HONS) in Textile Design. Slowly by trial and error I have intuitively found myself in this space even though I had never felt comfortable being labelled as an artist and the ideals surrounding it. But the more I have accepted and listened to my gut, the more I have grown as an artist and therefore my work has a more meaningful impact on others and myself”

What inspires you and influences your style?

“It’s a very fluid process for me as I find inspiration for all things. At this present time, I find that nature provides an incredible source of inspiration. My mood can also have a big impact on what influences me; for example, a lamp post beautiful lit on the street can be the catalyst to an interesting conversation that can inspire my next thoughtful creation. I don’t think you should be bound by constrictions which is why I love to explore through the mix of different mediums”

What inspired the collection for the Superyacht Mustique 110?

“For this project the movement of the sea was very inspiring ad I wanted to embrace the feeling of safety and warmth one would feel in such a vessel. I also worked very closely with the Interior Design team at Studio Indigo who provided the architectural language, furniture and colour scheme that would influence the pieces. I created hand sketches and drawings that I would resize to fit perfectly into each space”

What feeling did you hope to evoke from these pieces?

“I wanted them to create a sense of calm and vitality, capturing the essence of movement while providing comfort. These pieces were designed to facilitate relaxation and contemplation, allowing those on board to connect with the environment and experience a unique blend of tranquillity and energy”

How important is art to a space?

“The importance of art in a space cannot be overstated. Art has a transformative power that can be compared to a quasi- religious experience. It’s akin to the feeling of entering a sacred place, where the space seems to communicate with you on a deep level, regardless of one’s religious beliefs, communicating with individuals on a profound level”

How to commission art

Commissioning art is a highly personal and collaborative process and what is most important can vary depending on individual preferences and goals. Choosing the right artist is vital – considering their style, medium and expectation, as well as any specific requirements and constraints. Understanding your budget and timescale is also important. “For me the most important thing is the connection with the client. To be able to establish a good and responsive communication where both parties show respect and commitment. There is nothing more rewarding than a commission working out so well that you get to work together with the same team in the future” shares Adriana.  Commissioning art should achieve a meaningful and personal result that alights with your vision and enhances your space or collection


The Mustique 110 yacht by Moonen Yachts represents an exploration into the new generation of yacht owners, catering to their discerning taste that yearns for quiet luxury that is comfortable and functional. Clean and sweeping fluid lines dominate the architecture of the yacht designed by Studio Indigo with a profound emphasis on form and materiality. Adriana’s unique artistic style resonated deeply with the project’s ethos, both in terms of movement and colour, making her collaboration a natural fit. Adriana’s six specifically designed pieces drew inspiration from the Lead Designer, Lyne Arbid, injecting a burst of colour into the yachts restrained interior. These pieces evoke a sense of calm and curiosity, echoing the tranquillity and safety one experiences while sailing on board a Moonen.
